Hi guys, I was wondering how to get that high pitch screaming tone from my guitar, usually for a solo. Is there a specific pedal for it? Thanks!

I had such trouble reading learn how to do pinch harmonics. You're best off having a guitarist you know teach you how.

agreed the concept is the same but there are several different ways to do it & its best to have someone show you / work it out for yourself. the basic premise is that after you pick the string your thumb or another finger will graze the string causing it to resonate harmonically good luck it took me a year of off & on working on it to get it consistent.

Have you tried bashing it to death or raping it?

But, in response to the question, I do pinch harmonics by rolling my thumb off the pick a bit, and I can get them pretty consistent

Also, second, Don't fall into guitarist's slang. Use the proper term: Artificial Harmonic.


I can do the whole floods solo by pantera in them. (Yes, even the shred part :])

Or atleast go on you tube and look at videos.

Divebombs work too, if you have a tremolo and a lot of distortion.

Pinch harmonic isn't slang, it's a specific technique used to create artificial harmonics, just like tapped harmonics.

Oh

All the cool kids are saying to "Superman Dat Ho"

So, without knowledge of what context it was originally used in, I attempted to be 'hip'.

And I failed.


But yea, pinch harmonics are pretty much just letting your thumb over-lap the bottom of the pick ever so slightly. Hit that mother real hard, and you should produce a "scream". I found it easier when I was starting to hit them on bends or hit them with heaps of vibrato.
