Exceptional.

However, there is an elephant in the room:

   S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S  
|--5-----5-----5-----8-----6-----5-----|
|--------------------------------------|
|----3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----3---|
|------4-----4-----4-----4-----4-----4-|
|--5-----------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------|

...And I assume that Oggirt puts a capo on fret 4 specifically because of this measure. The stretch is impossible without it. But, that means that all of the strings have to be tuned down a major 3rd (4 half steps) in addition to the other tuning adjustments.

I decided to skip all that trouble and just finger it like:

   S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S  
|--5-----5-----5-----8-----6-----5-----|
|--------------------------------------|
|----3-----3-----3-------0-----0-----0-|
|------4-----4-----4---7-----7-----7---|
|--5-----------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------|

I just tune the 2nd and 3rd strings down a half step, play the measure that way, and let 'er rip. There are a couple of other iffy stretches though. But I'll probably try to get this one up to performance level at some point, and then I'll find out how well my idea really works.
