I know roughly how to do them, im still learning, but what i want to know is, when used in metal songs, are they immediately followed by a pull on the whammy bar or simply by rapid vibrato?... hopefully someone knows what im talking about

You should do them with distortion. You can do them clean, but to get the best sound you should use distortion.

^ You just need to find the right spot. It's quite easy once you get the hang of it.


Yeah, it is usually followed with a full bend and then a half bend, but make it fast, so it will sound like a vibrato.

what now? that'd sound like ass, surely. you want the vibrato to be hitting the same pitch on each bend...

you have to find the harmonic spot of where you pick. take a look at this
http://www.cyberfret.com/techniques/harmonics/pinch/index.php
if you take the time to read it it will say to find the harmonic where you pick. mines right behind my neck pick up. once you find the spot tats where you want to lightly use the thumb technique. start by practicng on the d string 7th fret. it took me about a week to learn.

parkway drive and killswitch engage do exactly that, and it certainly doesn't sound like ass..
#11
yea it took me a while to do them... but then I learned that if i got under the strings, and hit it with the pick and then brush my thumb it works very well... and after practicing for a while i dont have to get under the string so much... but anywayz...

to get a good sounding pinch harmonics you need a good bit of distortion and to pluck in the right place of the string. Different locations on the string have different harmonics

use distortion and lots of treble for best results

i thought they were called pinched harmonics.

They are and aren't.
Pinch, pinched, fake, false, artificial... it's all the same, they're all squealies.

I get the best sound out of them by bending them about a half step and then vibrato'ing either an additional half step or an additional full step.
The difference between doing bend/vibrato and bar dives is the bend will raise the pitch and the bar will lower it.

bend the string to get a really harsh kind, use some vibrato to some subtle-er ones.

are you sure? it sounds to me just like normal, wide, vibrato (no idea who parkway drive even are, i mean KSE)...

Yes, two wide vibratos, the first one is smaller than the second. Thus a half and a full

EDIT: they sound to be at the same pitch to me. i stand by what i said.

Does the pickup make a difference? Like if you have a name brand pickup will it make a difference?
#20
if you have a pickup with good harmonics, it'll make a difference, yeah.
