A very useful technique on the guitar, stutter picking, is picking on one string and utilizing the tones on that string. The possibilities with this technique are endless! You can play all your scales, arpeggios, licks and more on one single string while also playing that open string throughout. Challenge yourself and try this technique in different keys and playing over and thru chord changes and hear how that open string applies to that harmony. Try using all six as well and expand your ideas!
