Songs with this sound in it?

Hey guys!
Thereīs this sound that I like a lot in songs, the one you do by slightly touching the strings with your fingers. Are these sounds harmonics? Yeah I just want some songs with it in them.


Dope- Thanks for nothing
(1:39)
Pennywise- X Generation
(0:10)
Iron Maiden- Killers
(1:02)

Hope to hear from ya.

i have no idea what you're talking about and it's super easy to make youtube videos load at a specific point to demonstrate what you mean instead of just starting at the beginning

Most of that was improvised. Here's the actual song. It's a bit prettier than the live video. Ridiculously hard to play though.

I think you mean natural harmonics, right? The one where you rest your finger over a specific fret. All you do is rest your finger over the metal band where the fret ends (similar to muting, but don't press down on it), then you can produce those sounds when picking. Most players use the 4th, 5th or 7th frets, sometimes the 3rd fret too, although the 5th, 7th and 12th produce clear tones as opposed to more metallic pinging sounds.

For examples in songs:

0:22:



Intro:



And at 0:24, this guy demonstrates what I'm talking about. Also a good lesson on artificial harmonics.

Thanks for the input man! I actully meant when you slide your finger over the fretboard, not on one single fret.

Those are just natural harmonics, more complex versions are harmonic slides. Zakk Wylde does it a lot


Slide Harmonics

Man, that's an easy one. There's one in the beginning of Crazy Train, with a pickscrape dubbed over it. I'm surprised that isn't more obvious.

you can get the sound without any sliding technique. strumming and moving ur fretting hand creates something similiar. just dont press down the strings. lay ur hand on it softly. too much would pressure would be muting the strings, so if you mute them you know you are pressing a tad too hard.


(around 2.30)

it kind of gives that effect but it rings out more.
If that's what you mean anyway.
