Hi all, a question about the loved (or dreaded) pinch harmonic.

With dunlop gator grips, I can hit pinch harmonics constantly, but have recently switched to jazz III's as I love the feel. The rest of my playing feels much smoother, apart from pinch harmonics. Which is strange, as most people say they are great for this reason.

I can still hit them, but not only around 8 times out of 10 instead of every time, and I find I have to hold my pick at a more 'slicing' angle, instead of flat.

Is this common, and just something I need to get used to, or is it my technique that needs brushing up.

Thanks in advance, probably got the most advice from this site than anywhere.

I still sometimes have issues with pinch harmonics; they require an obscene amount of precision to really do right. I wouldn't worry about it too much if you could do them reliably before, you probably just need to get used to the new pick; Jazz IIIs and those Gator Grips are very different sizes and also slightly differently shaped so just give it a bit more time. You obviously know the mechanics so you'll be fine

If i miss one it was an intentional semi-harmonic. Honest.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
