Are they easier to do on an electric because im at my grans practising on an acoustic and they sound a little quite, and also do you have any tips on how to get them louder if the answer to the above is no?


Thanks, Aidan.

I'd say that they are easier on an acoustic tbh.

I'm not sure how you personally perform tap harmonics but I actually pick and tap and the same time. My index positions itself an octave higher then the fretted note, then I pick the harmonic with my thumb which is behind my index. (I don't use a pick, I'm a fingerstyle guitarist)

Here's a video of Don Ross using the same technique, just with different fingers.

I find 'em easier on an electric.
Just tap harder if you want 'em to be louder.

My guitar isn't set up for tapped harmonics, but I've done them on a friend's electric, and they're easy. Acoustic they're harder than hell.

I don't understand all these replies...tapped harmonics are MUCH easier for me on acoustic. Higher action brings out the harmonics more.
