for me pmi pmi pmi pmi is the fastest at first try, almost at speed. Or if you want to avoid the thumb, then iam iam iam iam. Or ima ima ima ima.

on two strings for me "ima" or "pim".
But it is faster for me to use 3 String for this. Is there a reason for using 2 strings only?

Yeah, looks like something that was tabbed incorrectly or a heavy metal neo classical lick written for pick style. Where's it from?

There's not a shred of evidence to suggest he'll do that.
