google "pinch harmonics". There's a tone of website with video on how to do it. I learnt it that way myself.

cheers!

BTW, strike a string and immediately touch the edge of your thumb somewhere between the pickups. Its an experiment. On one string you can get several harmonic spots between the pups. so basically you can keep picking strings and go up and down a string and get harmonics. Hard to explain. got to see some videos or something...

With lots of distortion and hot pickups, you can get in that situation easily. And to the threadstarter, you gotta have a lot of distortion when you are learning to get the pinch harmonics. Once you are an expert, and you memorized the locations where you get the harmonics, then its not absolutely necessary to have tons of disto.

Well, IMO it's different on every guitar.

Probably not true, but with every guitar with a different scale it is, because it's all to do with the distance between where you're trying to get the harmonic from the bridge, and from the nut.

As far as I'M aware though, its all in % distance. Which is why the 12th fret is an octave and gives the easiest natural harmonic.

i have wondered y its so easy to make a natural harmonic at the 12 frets but the others r kinda difficult

You just got better at the technique. Dont bother figuring out why you could not do it. Check and see if you can do it consistently. Then add a pinched harmonic to a lick that you are practising.

cheers!

Because of Science.

The most natural harmonic is the easiest to pull off. That is the one thats half way between the bridge and the nut, which is at the 12th fret,

Notes are all mathematic, and through Hertz (Hz), they all have a link.

i.e. take middle A, which is 440Hz, the next A above that is 880Hz, and the A below it would be 220Hz.

Crazy eh?

5th and 7th fret naturals are easy to get too. So is 17th or 19th I forget. Theoretically with sufficient distortion, you can get natural harmonics at all the frets but the one you mentioned and the ones above are the easiest.
