I was just playing around on the fretboard and i found that i can make artificial harmonics with my left hand by sliding over the metal fret things just as i pick the string then i let go of the string at the same time, and the string stops vibrating and well yea, makes a harmonic, anyone know what this is called? :/

thanks

^ no you are right the lightly fretted harmonics are natural, unless the harp ones but heck i dont get far into the technical terms of them unless pinched etc...i usually just play them and call em harmonics lol.

pretty sure the harp harmonics are artificial
