Rolling Stone selected Marnie Stern for the latest installment in their Young Guns series, which explores the most notable guitarists from the next generation of six-string legends.
Although known for her extensive use of fingertapping, the New York-based guitarist—who you may have seen on television sitting in with the house band on Late Night With Seth Meyers—tells RS she’s been experimenting with new ways to shred while working on her fifth album.
“I’ve been using fingerpicking to texture the rhythmic parts of the songs,” she explains. “I’ve been trying a little bit of sweeping. I’ve been building off different chord structures, playing in minors a little bit more.”
