touch the string very gently above the wire of the 12th fret with your left hand and pluck the string with your right hand.
#4
lightly lay your finger along the 12th fret, put very very very VERY little pressure on the strings - not enough to even fret them, mind you - and strum/pick the strings you want

Gently place your finger on the string at the 12th fret but don't push hard, just a tiny contact area.

Am I the only person who rests it gently but then pulls it off immediately after I pick it? :/


And yeah, I find it easiest on frets 5 (Plays root note of string - On E string = E) , 7 (Plays perfect fifth of string root - On E string = B), 12 (Plays root note of string On E string = E), and 19 (Plays perfect fifth of string root - On E string = B) - at least that's to the best of my knowledge (That's what a friend told me, when I played them to him and he checked it against a piano).

you can also get natural harmonics on the 7th, 5th, and 3rd (pending on you guitar)
#11
Don't forget you can induce any natural harmonics any where else along the fretboard. IE: if you want a harmonic on the 13th fret, you can fret the first fret of that string, play the note, then tap above the 13th fret to sound the harmonic. You can also pick with your thumb and middle finger while holding you index on the 13th fret. If you get good at this you can play notes you couldn't normally play on your guitar.
