How should I play this bar? I'm having trouble figuring out the fingering so that I can play it easily (or as easily as possible, anyways).
I would suggest barring your index finger across the 9th fret, and use your middle and ring fingers for the other notes, until you reach the last 5 notes. Move your index finger to the 8th fret of the B string, and then use your ring, middle, then index finger on the 12th, 10th, and 9th fret respectively on the D string.
Hope this helps! :)

Use your index finger for the 9th fret, 2nd (middle) finger for the 10th fret, and your 4th (pinky) finger for the 12th fret. Given that it's 8th notes, I think a barre is probably unnecessary (unless it's very fast), but could be placed across the 9th fret.
When you get to the one note on the 8th fret, use your index finger. You'll then need to stretch for the 12th fret immediately after, but you'll then be back to the above fingering.
