Ok, let's see..
Now I'm referring to your flickr image which in my edition is bar 20?!
First of all I'm staying on 2nd string except for the A (3rd string) and the last note, open E.
fingering b-string LH: 1 0 I 1 4 4 I__x I 0 1 4 x
fingering a-string LH: 0__I 2___ I 2__I 2____

(The 1st x is A on 3rd string, the 2nd x is open E)

Your fingering would be nice for a slow legato passage. But I think in this case it has to be more snappy.
I hope it's understandable..
At least my 5 centavos:)

I´ve been in a hard time about 2 years to get velocity in the fisrt big scale .. never reached a good articulation neither velocity (as far as I got was about 110 on metronome)
Have you tried the 3-note-per-string technique? The scale passage in question can be fingered as follows, from 1st string down to 5th string:

134 311 ami ami
431 ami
431 ami
421 ami
421 0 ami p

Instead of ami you could also use pmi, although only free stroke in that case. With a little practice you should be able to comfortably get far past 110 bpm.

It´s a relaxed scale but if you do i-m since the begining of the piece, it´s hard to " glue"
