I use pinch harmonics frequently, is it true that using them can blow up an amp?

also, what are some cool ideas, or maybe some riffs, about how to write music with pinch harmonics?

I've never heard that about the amps, though I think I'll go deaf using them with headphones plugged in.

Your obligation to this site was to read the rules of the forums which you havent read obviously. The newbie forum is for welcoming members in the Hi thread and for website questions only.
But thats cool. I'll help you out.. You could go to the guitar related forums in which you will definately get more help and you can discuss anything related to guitars..
You can go to the :Guitar & Bass Basics forum, Electric Guitar forum, or even to musician talk to talk about the pinch harmonics or their technics and stuff.

The newbie forum is also for people still unsure of the rest of the forums. Here they can ask a question they're not sure where it should go, or if they'll sound stupid, and so can receive a polite response here, rather than be insulted somewhere else.

So thats what I did.. I ensured him/her this was the wrong forum and I pointed him out to the correct ones reminding him to read the rules before posting, it's important..

im pretty sure they dont blow amps up, otherwise mine would be toasted! and people wouldnt use them i dont think...

um you try doing some pinch harmonics and doing crazy vibrato with a whammy bar if you have one..

also try hitting pich harmonics while holding a chord shape and strum a pinch harmonic.. it sounds cool..

partially true. if they aren't sure where to put a thread, they can make one here asking "where can i talk about such and such?", but just posting random threads here because you don't know where they should go isn't what this forum is for.

ntchode: your first question sounds like a complete myth to me. for advice on how to use pinch harmonics, please see the guitar related forums like Necrolust suggested, or maybe even the lessons here on UG. they might have some info or suggestions you'd find useful.

varga88: 'lmao' is a pointless response to this thread, so it is spam. either post constructively or don't post at all.
