If your only doing upstroke, then the solution is spending a couple weeks learning alternate picking, and then moving to pinch harmonics.

Post a pick of your picking hand, no one knows what you're on about right now.

My picking hand looks like that, and I pick with downstrokes and upstrokes (primarily downstrokes) but I don't know how to hit pinch harmonics with my hand in that position

Frankly, you're not going to hit pinches like that, Friedman himself doesn't use that kind of picking all the time either.

I would recommend that you just change your picking, there is nothing to recommend the way he picks. At all.

Well you will have to change something, you could do upstrokes and use part of your index finger which can work but its not as good to me, probably because I never do it.
