How come if you play something with just natural harmonics it doesn't sound the same if you play the same frets with out using harmonics? I was just messing around and got the little NBC jingle which was 7-9-5 with harmonics but it doesn't sound the same if you just play regular notes on 7-9-5.

Sometimes harmonics give you funny notes I find.. Not too sure why.

Harmonics on frets other than 12 and 24 will always be different to the fretted note.

not true, seventh e, for example, is a B in both cases. as are the the Twelfth frets obviously, among others.


to threadstarter, the harmonic pitch is not always directly relevant to the fretted note because of the way nodes, and ultimately frequencies, are differentiated according to string placement, and not by changing string length like fretting a normal note.

..if you see what i mean....


hope this helps
