Sorry about the typo: Intentional feedback.
I don't know if this is the correct forum or not.

I'm currently rehearsing The Pot by Tool with a band. After the first verse the guitar plays something like:

A-----15^---
E--0--------


In the middle of the long bend there is supposed to be feedback, but I can't seem to achieve it.
I've never really needed feedback before, so I don't know how to pull it off.

How can I get feedback here?

It's feedback, not harmonics.

get closer to your amp. the hard part is once you`ve got the feedback trying to control it to make it musical (finding the sweet spot)

and you can start feedback from a harmonic

This is an interesting topic, I once saw this guy playing in a very "Satriani" style an he managed to use feedback easily and making it sound great, right in spot... not too much just about the right feedback.

It probably takes some experimentation at high volume levels to get it to work + overdrive/distortion.

The trick seems to create some feedback then move away before it becomes unbearable, playing with the distance between you and the amp.

Beside you can let all strings feedback but it will sound messy, so try muting all except one or two and just let them ring until feedback comes in.

I'm not an expert at this, those are just some ideas that I think should work.

Thanks! I will try experimenting a bit.

Your neighbours are gonna absolutely love you practising feedback a couple of hours a week. :P

I hit my guitar.

Seriously, just a light tap on the body, then getting close to the amp, and walah, feedback.

Anyway, I still think harmonics would be the easiest way to go if you can't get your guitar pickups right up to the amp.
