I'd ditch the software and use my instrument for all learning. If an instrument and sheet of music are good enough for all of history's badass musicians, they're good enough for today's students.

Yeah, that's a natural harmonic, so he's just using an open string. Pinch harmonics have a characteristic squealing sound.

As far as I know, the only way to make a bass tension sound like a non-root is to resolve strongly to the chord in the upper voices. Accenting a non-chord tone in the bass will likely just confuse...
