if anybody could help, i have been trying to get pinch harmonics on two strings at the sametime but everytime it just seems to get one of the pinchs and i guess cancels the other out. any help would be great thanks.

Holy crap you can do that? *starts practicing*
"You can drink an ugly chick hot, but you can’t drink a fat chick skinny."

Fender: HSS Stratocaster

Since you need to touch the string with both the pick and your thumb I think is not possible to do it on 2 strings at the same time, or at least it's VERY hard. Good luck.

Seriously, is that humanly possible? Are you referring to natural harmonics?
My gear:
Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels
B-52 LG-100A 4x12 half stack
Rogue LX405 Bass
Yamaha classical
Some sort of acoustic Squier
Boss Flanger
Lyon Chorus

I suggest a pinched harmonic on one string, followed through normally to the higher string, on which you have a natural harmonic fretted.

To do it properly, you need to be quick with your picking hand... you can do it on chords too, 5 or 6 string.

On to the technique. Find the first pinch u need, then go slightly to the right on the next string if its a power chord... or slightly to the left if its a third or some kind of interval. If u are playing the power chord with an added octave you just continue down like the previous string. If it is an add9 power chord you move slightly to the right again on said string. Its a relatively easy technique but slightly difficult to grasp in the beginning.

I hope this helps

Yes it can be done. I can do it, but it sounds like a demon being raped in the a$$.

Here's a recording of me doing it;

first 4 harmonics are separate to hear which I play, then you hear the "Rape" of 2 harmonics with vibrato/bending at the same time.

Now that's a reason to learn to do something if ever I heard one...

Like in chord form?

Simple, just kind of keep your hand in the same position from the first, and just let it slide onto the second...not that hard.

I do my artificial harmonics with my pinkie slightly touching the picked string...I just find that easier than using my thumb, especially when switching from normal picking to harmonics..

I tried that for a while before I could get the thumb techique down but once I practiced the thumb technique more I found that it's much easier to use and also considerably easier to hit the right nodes you want.

Yeah it's possible, but are you talking about it with like, more of a rough sound than an actual pinch harmonic sound?

uh idk, the thing i'm goin from is like what zakk does in some ozzy songs like miracle man and devils daughter where he gets like two pinchs from two strings, say he was fretting the 4th fret d and g strings
#19
Really? Huh, I thought those were easy as hell...
But pick and brush your thumb against both the strings in a single downstroke. I dont really know how to explain it actually, lol. Sorry.

Edit: Wait, do you mean on strings that aren't right next to eachother, like a string skip pinch? If so, I cant help you.

You can do whole chords with this. The trick is to not mute the first string when you go to the second, that's all there is to it. If you're doing pinches carefully it's possible.
