Ok I need to rephrase what I said in the last post because for some reason I didnt really mention what I was getting to. I was messing around with my Telecaster and my friends crappy Squier Strat yesterday and for some reason I can do pinch harmonics easily on the plain strings, but when I try it on my SG with EMG 81 at the bridge it is hard to do...and I cant do it at all on the little e string (d in my case). What is wrong here?
It is very common that every guitar has a little different feel for where pinch harmonics are. The distance between the bridge and the natural harmonic spot is different. I can do them easily on my SG but struggled when I had a Squire... same guitars, same problem for me too...
what do you mean plain strings?
The G, B, and E strings.
