When I play harmonics, I can never seem to make them last longer than a second. Is my guitar or me?

It could possibly be your amp.
It's GANDHI not GHANDI

Add a little more gain and more mids.

are you pulling off after you play the harmonic?

don't ruthlessly pull off just gently lift your fingers off the string after you've picked. If your using anything other than the 12th fret, high gain distortion is probbaly best

...or maybe your string "frets out" just a little.

Like it hits the the fret? Should I adjust my action?

Yes, distortion is turned up.

You're thinking of natural harmonics, I think. Pulling off of an artificial harmonic would surely kill the harmonic totally and completely.

if your strings are old they will be horable for harmonics
so I sugest changing them every week to pervent freting out

Going through 52 sets of strings a year isn't practical for most people.

Not that I think it is neccesary or anything but thats $5 a week...I can find that much change in my car each week.

right,
changign strings every week is a waste of time and money adn is completely unnecessary.

strings dont' go bad after a week.

Hey agree there is no need. Unless you tour and the strings are constantly in ****ty humid conditions under hot lights.
