Ok so i don't know if it's in the right section, its about playing, but actually can obly be done with electric (well that's what i thought) if not, please move it. Ok so i was just wondering, when people play solos, lets say slash from Guns n roses or Angus Young from AC/DC, they sometimes make the sound, when it seems that the note is breaking, it sounds like it screams or something. I don't actually know how to explain it. The thing i am asking, is how are they doing it? Or at least, how the thing is called.
No spam please

I can think of a few things it could be:
Pinch harmonic.
Natural harmonics.
Feedback.

Can you find a clip of the sound on Youtube maybe?

Sounds like you described a pinch harmonic to me.

I think what you mean is a pinch harmonic. It's where as you pick a note you let the edge of your thumb or finger touch the string very gently in just the right spot to generate a harmonic that gives you the squealing sound. It can be quite tricky to master, there;s probably some lessons on UG somewhere that can explain it much better than I can.

Yep quite possible a artificial/natural harmonic
Feedback
Maybe even really aggressive vibrato after a bend?

I found pinch harmonics quite easy to learn by watching a crap load of youtube videos on the subject. It really helps when you can actually see how people do it
