Pretty simple question....how exactly does he do them?

I saw a YouTube video of him explaining it...but I really didn't understand much of it.

Basically all I got out of it was that he uses harmonics on the G string and uses he whammy to dive but I tried for over an hour and couldn't seem to figure out how exactly he was doing it.

Also, is there any special equipment required to do them?

Here's the video, if that helps

alright..... flick the g string, and dump the bar.. dump it as low as you want just dont makle the strings rubber bands. on the way up, catch the harmonic without picking it on either the 3rd or 5th fret, and just start wailing.

So I just woke up sitting in my desk chair, with my bong on the desk in a bunch of little pieces and my hand super glued to my penis. Speculations as to what the hell just happened and how to unglue my hand from my member would be appreciated.

A guitar with a floating bridge tremolo and you're set, I think. There are other videos on Youtube, watch them, that's all I can say. |:

1) Flick the string
2) Dive down
3) tap/lightly touch above any fret/fretwire (depends on position, experiment which is best, usually 5/7/12 is the easiest)
4) gently let go/dive up the trem

Very easy to do once you get the hang of it. Here's my take

This will work on any string.
You pluck the string, dive down the trem until the string are flopping around, and place your finger LIGHTLY on the string right about the fifth or seventh or 12th fret wire and let the trem go back up to normal, and itll be squeeling.

It sounds even better when you damp all the other strings properly, and just let the G string ring (if you're not doing that already )
