About 2 years ago I was playing in a Metal band and I started using this technique. Instead of the standard 2 finger back and forth rotation; First finger Middle finger First finger Middle finger etc... I started kind of flicking back and forth with the same finger, Very fast. Almost a pic like effect but with 1 finger. Opened up new doors for me. Took a while to really get good at but it seems to fit in well with metal. So now I can play parts on other strings while maintaining a real heavy, fast low end. Just wondering if anyone else is using this tech regullarly. Maybe a dumb question??
