ok ive seen people do it, i can just about get how natural harmonics work, but can some one provide a detailed description of how you actually do a pinch harmonic? ive got a distortion pedal so hows it done??

right a pinch harmonic is a type of artificial harmonic, and is played by just touching the string after you have played a note, usually done with the thumb. There are tutorials on here that explain it far better than I can

when you pick down try and get the tip of your thumb to touch the string right after.

I just sinch way up on the pick, hold it near the tip ( I usually play pretty far up anyway) and rotate your hand in such a way that your thumb hits the string immediately after the pick, like nanoseconds after. Works best with distortion and bridge pickup and over a harmonic node. Try right over the neck pickup on the 2nd or 3rd string.

it just takes practice, took me a month or 2 to get them going properly

first off you have to be able to hold your thumb just right so that it hits the string your trying to do a harmonic on try ,go ahead and practice..alot......ok got it? now that you have got it on a basic mote..the tricky part is not all guitars make the same harmonic..to make it easier on you make sure you have alot of gain on your amp so that the strings are alittle more sensitive and you basicly have to feel out the sweet spots on your guitar for each string when pinching..i know this may be confusing but i had to leaen it on my own.

also if your trying to play a song and cant get the pinch in just right...try palm muteing the strings until you hit the harmonic(the extra vibration may be killing the sound)..and thats a basic of it..if you need more help in it go to youtube and type in pinch harmonics...that will help you alot....and good luck
