Hey. So I'm convinced that No-Ca$h is one of the most amazing bands ever. Anyway, in a LOT of their songs, they do this weird thing with the guitar(s) that kinda sounds like a siren and it's really really high pitched and I wanna know how to do it. I don't know if I need some kind of effects pedal or some special distortion or what. Any help would be greatly appreciated with this.

Thanks a lot.

From your description it sounds like its a Pinch Harmonic.

No need for pedals, it can be done easily (ok not easily when you're trying to learn it, it can be quite hard to get down perfectly, but once you know how it's easy), just jut out your thumb a bit and strike the string at a certain angle, depending on the fret you're fretting, you will have to strike the string in question at a certain point on the bridge. Just experiment and you'll get it. Also, thicker picks help (1.5mm and 2.0mm) VERY MUCH, trust me on this, and if you have active pickups well then you'll prob. get them on the first try.

they use a lot of octaves, just dropping the fifth on a powerchord, beyond that, I dont know much about them instrument wise. Although, I do know quite a bit about them...
