Dropped-D Tuning
I find a 3-finger style(thumb "p", index "i", and middle "m") to be more effective than using 4 fingers(not to mention 5). It makes the velocity and attack easier to achieve. I also recommend this approach for Busted Bicycle. If nothing else it takes me out of my four finger rut. I would suggest you also try fingerpicks. I'll make right hand fingering indications that I think keep a regular momentum going(which includes picking out a note here and there on the first and second strings with the thumb).
"X" == mute the note e.g. ---X7--- "h" == hammer "p" == pull off to that note "\b" or "/b" == bend down or up to note "\" or "/" == slide down or up (attention) mf freely, whatever ------------------------ ------------------------ ------------------------ ------------------------ ----0----0-------------- ----0----0--------------
