i couldnt sleep and spent all night just playing and found an easy way to do pitch harmonics ..... if you hold your pick to were you hit your strings with the rounded side then this will work easily for you, if you pick the other way it is harder to do it my way, but its still possible.


1 go into a short riff

2 lightly palm mute the string you are trying to do the harmonic on ( helps if its a higher tuned string than the ones you were doing your ' riff ' on )

3 start your bend on the desired fret ( easier to a fret above 9 on a high tuned string when starting out ), quickly release the pm and go into step 4

4 pluck the string right to the side of a pickup with a quick rolling downward motion ( not a strum , but actually pluck the string like your trying to pull it away from you ) and continue your bend ..... the firmer and higher the better


this is the easiest pitch harmonic for me ..... its a fill from crazy train


e --------------------------------
B --------------------------------
G -----------------------7*-----
D --------------7-----7 (light mute)
A 4---4---4---5----------------
E 2---0---2---------------------

what I do for pinch harmonics is lay my picking hand's pinky on the string I'm playing and I lift it up right after I pluck it. May not make sense, but It works...

PINCH harmonic...
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I knew a guy who would hit a natural harmonic and then fret it on the same fret right after... all these people trying to get around good ol' practice.

thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard , the purpose of this thread was to just post my style or way of doing something , ive tried the thumb and pinky way but i do them every time this way and its done naturally instead of two completely different motions ..... anyways , just because you know how to do something doesnt mean you know every thing about it ..... just look at war , just because you go to war , doesnt mean you've seen every aspect of warfare ..... thats why you comunicate with people to take in information and share advice , which was the purpose of this damn thread anyways ..... and ' you've just taught us to do something we already know. ' doesnt make any since if you were directing that to me b / c you dont know ' everyone ' and ' everyone ' before you that came to this thread say they use their pinky or thumb , so what you said makes no sense at all ..... i know i sound like an asshole , but **** it this dude doesnt have a ****ing clue as to what reality is and is just running his ****ing mouth without knowing a damn thing

It doesn't sound right when I try it, I'm probably doing it wrong. However, I already learned pinch harmonics, so I'm good.

Aren't you just bending a pinch harmonic, something near everybody does anyway?

Why would you need an 'easy way' to do pinch harmonics? They are extremely easy to do anyways.
