Oh, and thank you for the refingering of the part; perhaps something to work on in the future, but right now it feels insanely awkward to do that 10-9-10, as opposed to rolling my ring / middle fingers across the fretboard.

Further, in case this helps someone in the future, I notice that the more I focus on timing that "pick-up note" (the 3rd note of the six, if it's not clear) precisely, the more articulate the whole group comes out. Anyway, I'm constantly amazed by what human hands can do. Thanks!

Hm, I think you're right! I just needed to "have some faith" (as helped by your answer) and dedicate myself to it, which I have been doing for a few hours now. I was afraid it'd be one of those things that might develop sloppily (e.g. blurring the hammer-on to make 5 eighth-quintuplets instead of 6 sixteenth-triplets) regardless of practice, unless helped by some technique. But I notice my picking hand is beginning to "think" of it as an emphatic note (embellished by the hammer-on) followed by 4 sixteenth-triplets, the first of which feels more and more like a pick-up note, which it should.
