Natural Harmonics

Pinch Harmonics

Tapped Harmonics: It's like barre chord harmonics. You're just moving the harmonic up however many frets you want. Imagine that you want to play a harmonic 1/2 step higher than the 5th fret harmonic on the A string. You fret the first fret and then tap the metal thing between the 6th and 7th frets.

Natural harmonics: Place your finger lightly over a fret (12 for example) and hit the string
Pinch harmonics: Damp the fretted note with your thumb afer picking to get that "squealing" noise
Tap harmonics: Fret a note (5th fret for example) and lightly but fast, tap the 12th fret...you should get a harmonic sound
Artificial harmonics: Well look at natural, if 12th is a natural, fret 1st and hit place finger above 13th to get the same harmonic only a fret up (2, 14 and so on), these are "artificial" harmonics.

cool way to do harmonics

hold the pick with your second finger and your thumb, and with your 1 finger you try to hit the harmonic while picking, its kinda hard at first but really cool, i saw eric johnson doing that in his gig at the first G3

That just sounds like a really bad way to cover up not being able to do Pinch Harmonics...

It actually is a pinch harmonic, albeit a goofy way of doing it.

you can also tap harmonics w/ your right hand hit the string like a piano hammer exactly 12 frets up from whatever note you have fretted w/ your left hand
and you gotta hit the fret itself not the board
