comment How can I toughen up my fingertips?
Does this actually work? I kind of feel like calluses are built up with bends and fretting / releasing strings. If the "strings" are static (i.e. you're always pushing on the grip), will it really build calluses?

@matthew, I find 30 minutes is usually enough time. Might depend on how thick your calluses are though.

comment What kind of effects make this Korn sound?
It's unlikely that they are playing detuned guitars. Korn paved the way for 7 strings in metal, so what you're probably hearing is a low B string. Of course, any normal axe needs some serious detuning.

comment how I must put my fingers for this tablature?
Thinking about why I'd use my pinky a bit further, I'm more likely to use my pinky on a progression like 9 - 10 - 12, because using my ring finger feels like a stretch. However, if the progression was 9 - 11 - 12, then that feels more natural to use my middle / ring fingers. At that point the fingering would depend on the context of the line. (Sorry to go all comment happy on you here, btw)

I appreciate your update of the answer, but I still think your finger numbers are wrong. If that's how you refer to them, cool, but no one else does. I'd just remove the numbers altogether and use the terms index, middle, ring, pinky. Otherwise it's confusing to anyone that thinks in terms of the standard counting (even with the clarification).

Using the pinky is almost certainly more "correct". I'd bet any jazz or classical player would use their pinky. However, Clapton never seems to use his. He'd probably use the fingering you've suggested, so there you go. In general, it's a playing style thing. If you have a style, play it that way. However, since the OP couldn't figure out how to finger this themselves, I'd advocate the "correct" way of doing it.

In general, I think it's easier when playing 3 notes to a string to use the "one finger per fret" rule (although, I'll use my ring finger while playing a 3 fret stretch on a blues scale). However, in this particular case, I'd use the pinky because I think the string skip would be a stretch using the ring finger. It also creates a smaller stretch between the 8th and 12th.
