I recently bought a Epiphone Les paul. And I don't seem to be able to make a pinch harmonic with Les paul models. Is there a diffrent technique for it? I managed to pinch harmonic on Ibanez and othe stratocaster guitars, but Im just not able to do it on a les paul. Could someone explain this to me? Ive seen lots of people do it on a les paul... so I doubt its not possible.

Thanx in advance,

it shouldnt make a difference at all, although where you pick to make them might have changed. try different places on each string.

Custom Strat
Mesa Boogie Stiletto Ace

Electro Harmonix Small Clone Chorus
Dunlop Crybaby Classic
MXR EVH-117 Flanger

yeah the "sweet spot" as i like to call it might be a bit different, or it could be technique...keep practicing and find the spot

its most likely because on les pauls the spots for the harmonics have moved so its a case of finding them.

Pinch harmonics can be done on any guitar. Its just a matter of technique and knowing where the harmonic nodes are. You can even pinch on an acoustic. It makes no difference if its an LP or an Ibanez.

On most les paul's iv'e played the perfect harmonic spot is in between the two pickups, but closer to the neck pickup.

BUT it all depends on what note on the fretboard you are doing a Pinch harmonic on, because the spot changes places as you move up and down the fretboard.

Usually the best places to do Pinch harmonics is where the 24th fret "theoritically" should be in relation to the note...

anyways, just find that sweet spot.

yeah you can hit multiple pinch harmonics just depends what note you want you can do every harmonic that you would do on say the 2.5th fret 3rd 4th 5th 6th all that without using your left hand just your picking hand but it depends what tone you want from the harmonic
