In This song at about 2:40 when Synyster Gates' solo starts how does he make that sound? is he just pulling his floyd up repeatedly or is it something else? And I'm assuming whatever he's doing with his left hand is just making it look cool?

Yeah as far as I can tell he's just whammying a harmonic.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

He probally plays a harmonic then just lifts up his floyd rose... It would probally sound better as a dive bomb though... He also just uses his left hand to be amazingly awesome... Because he can

Well, you just do a natural harmonic and change the pitch with the whammy bar.

There's really nothing to explain. He just plays a harmonic and then uses the whammy bar while it's ringing.
