Could lowering the action on my Ibanez make it easier to catch natural harmonics? Ive been trying to learn how to dive the whammy bar and catch a natural harmonic to make it squeal, but its hard to catch them on my guitar.

Thanks much.

Haha, MORE COWBELL!

On topic, check out a youtube vid. It could probably explain better than we can. I'm assuming a natural harmonic is a pinch harmonic? If so, it's all in the technique of your right hand. But like I said, a youtube video will do you some justice.

Natural harmonics are different from pinch harmonics, I can do pinch.
Natural is more left hand, its when you put your finger on a string over a fret but dont push down. It makes a high harmonic, and when you flick a string and dive with the whammy you can catch the harmonic at the bottom of the dive and pull back up and it'll squeal. Im just having issues catching the harmonic. Just wondering if lowering the action could help.

No, lower action makes it harder to hit natural harmonics because there's less room for the string to vibrate.

I can do both with ease, but I always mix up the names. xD

You also want to ensure that your intonation is correct. If your intonation is out you might be trying to catch the harmonic in the wrong spot.
