I was just learning how to play Panama by Van Halen and wanted some advice on how to play those harmonic riffs in the song. It only happens a few times but it is so epic. How exactly can I pull this off?
Light touch. That's about all you can really say about it. They're natural harmonics at the 5th and 4th frets so it's not the easiest thing in the world (even Eddie botches a few notes on the studio cut).
