Ok I have 2 questions really regarding the following two tab snippets(The Mexcan - Babe Ruth):

Firstly, am I supposed to slide the cord and add the 6th string without strumming somehow?

D5 Em

Secondly, do I really need to use all 4 fingers and thumb for this? also this feels like I would need to break a finger or two to even play...


Thanks in advance I couldn't find anything in all the tutorials that would explain this stuff.
for the first...try it slowly like this....strum the first chord then while sliding just hit/pick the added note.
then the 2nd....Bar the 7th fret with your index finger and use your 2nd and 3rd finger for the note on the 8th and 9th frets.
