Fret a harmonic on the same string, 5th, vs 17th. The 17th is an octave higher, as you'd expect.

Fret a harmonic on the same string, 12th, vs 24th. The 24th is an octave higher, as you'd expect.

Fret a harmonic on the same string, 7th, vs 19th. They are unison, same note.

What's the scientific reason for this? I'm curious. 4th and 16th seem to be unison too.

Because they are the same node. The 5th fret is as far away from the nut as the 19th is away from the bridge. From the 12th fret to the bridge, is a mirror image of the 12th fret to the nut. If there is a node on one side of the 12 fret, the same node will be on the exact opposite side. That's a horrible explanation, I know. Does it make sense?


EDIT: This picture should help.

This was originally meant to mean harmonics are retarded, since weeaboos have no idea of the concept of "a joke", I have to clarify this meaning. Thank you, this is a presentation by the Lovecannon News Network.

This may be the single coolest picture I've seen on this forum with the single most informative post. All wrapped up in one. It's like a bacon-wrapped scallop of a post.

Dude don't get mad just ignore those posts. People will flame no matter what. When I was younger I deleted my old UG account because of it. And I think thats a cool question and the graphic is awesome.
