is exactly what i said about 5 minutes ago when this happened to me.
i was just checking my email and while doing so i was absent mindedly screwing around with the whammy bar, hitting high notes and just warping the crap out of them, and i had finished reading my email so i closed it, and carried on mucking about attempting divebombs etc.

i hit the 18th fret on the high e, bent it as hard as i could and bombed it on the whammy, then i let go of the fret, and let go of the whammy, and then noticed that the guitar was still ringing out the note from the 18th fret, while i had no hands on the neck. i tried muting the stings individually to see which one it was, and muted the high e last and that's when it stopped.

i wasnt playing through any pedals, just guitar -> amp.

was this some freak of physics or is this some sort of technique i just accidentaly used? 'cos i sure am having a hard time doing it again.

I think you managed to strike a nature harmonic note when letting go of the whammy bar.

dudes, i know what a harmonic sounds like. it was exactly as if i was fretting at 18. no pure, clean sound, just a normal note.

EDIT: and i highly doubt it was feedback, my amp is at one and when i want to get some feedback i need to bring it to about 3 or higher.

Dude, it was a harmonic. I get the same thing when playing at the 12th fret. Sometimes harmonics don't sounds like harmonics, but fretted notes.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
