I am using nightrain as an example. I never was really in the habit of barring of barring these power chords because it hurts the tone and any vibrato I might want to add.

|-------------------------------|----------------10--|
|-(9)r(9)-9b10r(9)-9b10r(9)-7-9-|--7-9-7-------------|
|-(9)-(9)-9b10r(9)-9b10r(9)-7-9-|--7-9-7-------------|

Something like this, would you use your pinky and your index finger to play the the first two chords and use your point and middle for the chord starting on the 7th fret?

BUMP

I just remember a hard-rock lesson that I downloaded when I was a member when the instructor, I cant remember who, recommended that you would use multiple fingers for baring licks like that. ? I can bar them and its sounds fine to an untrained ear I guess but who actually recommends doing it in another method?

I sometimes bar and sometimes use two fingers,

it really depends on what feels better,

try doing each for a few times and whatever comes naturally is your best option,

This really depends on the piece you are playing. I usually bar those chords as its seems economic to me. And you should be able to add some vibrato when playing those double stops too.... Try different methods for playing those passages and see what is most comfortable to you. There is no right or wrong way with this...

Bar them with different fingers (This time I would go for fingers 1 and 3 of the left hand). Apart of economize your hand movement, you'll have 2 fingers ready to go for another passage
