Quick test to see if I could get something different out of one string only.
Using the tips of three fingers to hit 3 times the string in the harmonic position. Then lightely touching the harmonic points down the fretboard, you kinda get druming sounds.
Sorry for the guitar,but my one stringe is well buried..and need to build a new one!.

You need to add your foot stompin' and use your right hand fingers to drum the soundboard. Basically, you need to get 3 or 4 different rhythms piled on top of each other. I found a good book on this subject:
