time to improve your legato skills, unless you broke your fretting arm, then I can't really offer much advice.

time to screw around with alternate tunings.....[


Start with the Rolling Stones. You can play the majority of Keith Richards' riffs with only your index finger.

learn to play legato with your right hand, then when your left arm heals you can play like MAB.

Where on your fretting hand did you break your arm?
-If on elbow, you should be fine. In fact, I learned a lot of songs when I fractured my elbow, since i couldn't do anything else
-If on wrist, I think it'll be harder to play high on the top three strings, cuz you would have to bend your wrist.
-If you broke a finger, you're f*cked.

Well if you broke your fretting hand....Time to work on fingerpicking... Learn some finger patterns and just practice them with open strings. Or you can tune your guitar to an open tuning if you want it to sound better..

Actually if I broke my fretting arm it'd prolly be good for me because I never have the patience for finger work.
I keep the wolf from the door, but he calls me on the phone, tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up, steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom, but I'll never see them again If I squeal to the cops.

Actually the opposite - quick and smooth. Legato literally means "tied together"... its when you play the notes smoothly with no pause between the notes (i.e. picking). So if you are playing legato on guitar you are strictly using hammer ons and pull offs with no picking in the pattern.
