SOTC Counterattack

I'm trying to make a fingerstyle tab of counterattack from shadow of the colossus, but there is a part of the rhythm I can't figure out for some reason.

Here are the first few measures:

In measure 6 there are six 32nd notes that I think start right on the 4th beat. But that makes the measure a 16th under 4 whole beats. Measures 9 and 10 are both incomplete by 8th note. I tried various groupings of 32nd and 16th notes but can't seem to match the original. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWlLp5riuzk

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CALL THIS IN ENGLISH, BUT THE SECOND RHYTHM GROUPING YOU USED IN THE FIRST MEASURE SHOULD WORK AT THE END OF MEASURE SIX. IF YOU DON'T GET WHAT I JUST SAID JUST TELL ME AND I'LL MAKE YOU A PDF FILE WITH THE CORRECT RHYTHM.

How the hell do you barre that?

EDIT: Yeah after messing around those chords are impossible to barre, or rather there would be no point even if you could.

If you changed the tuning on the G string it would be easily a barre chord.

@GÉRALD MCALLCAPS: I tried grouping them into 16th note triplets yesterday before making this post and thought those notes sounded a little slow compared to the original. They still sound slower to me, but I guess it that is the best way to write it, thanks.

@karathrow, like wayfaerer said, use your thumb. It's not too difficult for me, but I could tune the G string to G# if that is easier.

Why not transpose it up a whole tone?

Then everyone will be able to play it ^-^ And you could tune down a whole step if you wanted to play in the original key.

I think every note you wrote with T is a triplet.

I tried transposing it up, but that's makes the fingering difficult in the later parts. Instead I just got rid of one of the notes in that third chord to make it easier.

Does anyone think this is too difficult. Any ideas of how to make it more playable?

Alright, just about done. I just want to know if the last 12 measures of the song are easy enough. I think they were too difficult in the post above so I "dumbed down" the bassline.

Drop D Tuning

Starting at 1:20 in the midi.
