What's flutter picking? I've heard the term before and think I have an idea as to what it is, but I want to be sure.

I believe it's the same as tremolo picking, where you pick as fast as you possibly can, usually on a held-out note.

maybe your thinking of a legato technique. I believe its this: when you pick a note on one string and legato on the string below it. I hope this helps

Well I thought it was picking in a certain direction as fast as possible, not alternating.

Check the second solo in that song. That's what I was thinking it was but now I'm not sure.

If its anything like flutter tonguing when playing a flute, its just more commonly known as tremelo picking. Which is rapid alternate picking during a phrase or single note really.

Flutter tongueing is a flute technique, which can be used to give a tremelo effect.

So I presume it is just termelo picking.

I'm thinking maybe it's related to the whammy bar flutter?
Whammy bar flutter is when you tighten the bar a lot (so you can't move it around easily) pull it up a little bit and just let go, it makes the bar shake after you let go. I'd imagine flutter picking is using that technique combined with legato.
E.g.
B||--17p15h17p15-
You'd perform a flutter on each of the notes rather than picking them.

It's a complete guess though.

Flutter tounging is a technique for most wind instruments. Some trumpet players will "growl" via flutter tounguing.
