Same thing, different terms.


the picking is the same, but racking is slightly more specific.

When you rake you mute the notes until you hit the note you want to hit. Easier to show in tab...

What does that do? Just add characteristic to the playing?

Yes, it's mainly used to give a thick percussive sound to a single note, it sounds very cool when you do it correctly.
