Playing one string can be a powerful approach. First check out Lale's new lesson, "Evolving Metal Riffs 3", and then post a reply to today's topic.

How technical can you be on just one string? Have you ever created an entire song off of just one string?

It's a very cool effect for sure cool.gif Technically speaking, Master of Puppets and the middle section for Damage Inc. spring to mind.. as do many Testament riffs (and Lamb Of God, who are definitely influenced by Testament's chuggy 6/8 groove)

Personally I don't think I have any 1 string riffs... 2 string, yes smile.gif

You guys remember this band? They used only one and two string guitars.
