I've seen this done on a few videos, and at live gigs, and i've done it a couple of times myself but i was unsure as to whether there were certain "sweet spots" where it worked, or a certain technique.

I'm talking about when someone sustains a note for a long time, and after a short while, like, 3 or 4 seconds on one note, it will go into an octave harmonic.

Is there a technique to this? or any sweet spots where it works?

i thought it was kinda like feedback or resonance or something

I assumed it was feedback, creating certain pitches depending on amp volume and where you're standing. Like Steve does at 1:10
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

harmonics do hit sweet spots. the best places are the 7th and 12th frets. they give you the best clearest sound that will sustain if done right

what you can do is play a note on a fret with a natural harmonic, don't mute it and pull your finger off slowly on the harmonic and you can make the note ring with a harmonic after the notes done, also if you leave your tone nob turned down you hit a note and crank the tone nob and it'll get you a harmonic.
Also you should look into pinch harmonics if you haven't already

I think it's feedback, just boost the treble, turn the amp up and sustain a note.

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

It's not a harmonic technique in that it's nothing to do with what you do, it's just the feedback affecting the vibration of the string causing it to resonate at a different frequency...but technically that's what a harmonic is, a when a different overtone is more prevalent than the fundamental.
