I'm not sure I know what you mean: You can do the natural harmonics singly but not both at the same time?

Hmm, try the third fret G string, just move your finger across the string lightly and keep picking it until you hear a harmonic... Usually 3rd fret G string is very easy to get.

If you can get them just a little bit, you could always use a bit of compression to make them loud enough

I find that all the nat harmonics on the 2nd and 3rd fret are not like the rest. They are more like 2.3 or 3.4 instead of directly over the fret as it is with most.

And 2 harmonics on diff strings can be done at the same time. Gives a really strange sound though. Try high E and b string, 5th fret at same time with a whammy dip and you will hear what I mean.

Make sure to remove your finger from the string as soon as you pick. If you keep your finger on the string, you'll muffle the harmonic.

I had the same problem trying to get that sound for a while till I got that its not directly over the fret. if you have a Floyd rose try messing around with pinches on open stings you can get sum cool souds from it.
