The way i learned squealies was by sliding your thumb slightly out and then picking followed by your thumb. My question is how are some guitarists able to slide their thumb forward and back to play the harmonics, then play the regular notes? When i do pinch harmonics it takes me a while to slide my thumb forward and slide back. i can't play some of those songs at full speed. Help? THNX UGers!

why slide back your thumb you can just alwayskeep your thumb close to the pick but out of the way when regular picking and when you do a pinch just strum with a kind J motion so that your thumb barely touches the string and you get a harmonic but the best thing i could say is to practice the harmonics

It comes naturally with time. I honestly couldn't explain the motion anymore. If you practice it a lot, eventually it will be second nature. Look at something like the chorus to Cemetery Gates by Pantera
