yes he uses Pinch Harmonics... a lot more than needed. He also ruined crazy train that way, and ruined ozzy osbourne all in all. I never really listened to them that much, but I know RR was a lot better.

No, you got it all wrong.

Come to think of it, I suck at pinch harmonics on the 1st and second string. I have 9's, so I guess it's harder. I might as well get some 10's next time for PH.

I hate how everyone thinks you have to use as much distortion for it to be possible to do a pinch harmonic! you can do it unplugged if you want but it sounds alot better with alot of distortion.

Zakk Wylde is ****ing terrible. I saw him play with Ozzy at the Scream awards on Spike TV a couple weeks ago. He played pinch harmonics at the end of every bar... That guy needs to go home and think about what hes done.

Great guitarist? ha ha ha ha ha ha
You need to expand your horizons a lot. Theres no doubt he can play, but he's a long long way from being great. Plus the overuse of pinch harmonics is a joke. The new Ozzy album is the weakest he's ever done. Much of that rest directly on the shoulders of Zakk the one trick guitarist. It's not like it's hard to do pinch harmonics, but like everything else, a little taste, tone, and tenacity goes a long way. He shows none of the three on the latest album.
Play your guitar as much as you can.
Then play some more.

Yeah, when you sell over 30 million album and make solos like Mr.crowley then tell me that he is not a great guitarist until then stfu.

too bad randy wrote mr crowley and not zakk

but yeah i do have to agree after the 10 PH in a measure he does get a bit old. you can pretty much predict the entire song after hearing that first riff

*some drop C chug riff* + PH

repeat
NOPE

wow...

You seriously have no clue about Ozzy.
#28
You want the flesh of your thumb to brush the string directly after the pick sounds the string....It may take a long time to get that first one but once you get it it's easy...Jazz style picks make it easier for me....

I really just don't like Zakk, he uses PH's as fills and rarely uses them musically like Dimebag or Randy did.....He only uses like three frets for PH's in every one of his songs but it sounds different when he changes tuning.....I like his solo's though...

Whoever said Zakk is a one trick pony, you're a moron. Fair enough he is aquired taste, but he most certainly isn't a one trick pony.
Yes, they are pinch harmonics, search youtube or something for a lesson because there are millions around for them.

And anyway
Pinch harmonics

Yes, because we are all totally incapable of wanking the E minor pentatonic with random pinch harmonics thrown in like some kind of nervous tick.

The guy's fast, and he's got good consistency; I'll give him those, and those are two good things to have. He's got ****-all else though and has all the artistic merit and originality of your typical top 20 chart-topping pop song, quite frankly.

What about the fact he's an awesome singer, brilliant producer and plays the piano, along with other instruments, pretty perfectly. You have to admit the man has talent away from his over use of pinch harmonics, wah and minor pentatonics. The fact he's a complete tool aswell doesn't help him
I sound like one of those fanboys who thinks he's some kind of supreme god like most Zakk fans seem to be
