Alright, I'm trying to work on pinch harmonics and I just can't seem to get them right. I've read alot of techniques. but I want to hear tricks from you guys. What do you do to produce a great pinch harmonic?

Choke up on the end of the pick to the very tip of it. Pick the string, but instead of going straight through the string, hit it with your thumb.
Guitar/bass/mandolin stuff:
PRS SE Custom 24
PRS SE Paul Allender
Martin DCX1E
Squire Start
Memphis Bass
Johnson Savannah mando

Amp/effects/misc:
Digitech RP1000
Line 6 Spider Valve 212
Toneport Studio KB37

I like how he explains it with a "dig" motion thats what I've been doing lately and I can hit them pretty consistently

I find what works the best for me is doing it just past the bridge pickup.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
