can somebody plz tell me wat the following things are (and tell me how to do them):
ghost notes
artificial and natural harmonics (i know wat harmonics are i just dont know the difference between these two kinds)
pick squeels
sweep picking
#2
ghost notes: muting the string with your fretting hand whilst hitting it with the pick.
artificial harmonics: you get them when hitting strings with pick and thumb at the same time. You'll want to angle your pick in order to achieve that. Note that it does not work on every part of the string, you'll have to move your picking hand around a bit to find the "sweet" spots.

And: Ts, your spelling is horrible and this belongs in the electric guitar forum to be honest.

a ghost note is like when your guitar gets possesed and starts playing itself.

Natural harmonics are created by not fully pressing down the string on the fretboard, and it separates out some of the harmonies of the notes, and gives a 'natural harmonic.'

Pinches are a type of artificial harmonic- touching the string with the picking thumb or palm. These are pick squeals aswell.

Sweep picking is picking across the strings in one sweep.

I think ghost notes are muted at the bridge, but don't quote me on that.

Wrong. Artificial harmonics and pick squeals or pinch harmonics are different. look it up.

TS: I guess you are probably new to guitar, so you don't need to bother about these techniques (except for ghost notes), as they are somewhat advanced. You're better off practicing chords, scales and alternate picking I'd say.

What? I always thought pinch harmonics and artificial harmonics were the same. Please explain.

I got something wrong, big deal. It's possible to make a correction without going all 'pissed off teacher' on me.

an artificial harmonic can be sounded by using your left hand to hold a string at a certain fret, and plucking or tapping a harmonic higher up on the fretboard, in a location that would be a integer divisor of its vibrational length.

HAHA, your the only one thats getting offensive, i was just making a correction. takes more than that to get me in "mad teacher" mode...whatever that is

This man is right, Wikipedia says: "Pinch harmonics are generally considered a form of artificial harmonic, although in technique, they are different."

But he's still a douche.

That's not gifted.

And what the f*ck is a big ass chord? If big ass chords are based on the physical size, then I guess I'm more gifted than you for pulling chords on a bass

don't get too worked up about this, I wasn't trying to offend you. And no matter how gifted you are: You won't get far if you concentrate on advanced stuff, while you don't have the basic skills under your belt. Trust me on this, it'll benefit you in the long run. I see alot of dimebag and slash wannabes who can do some pinch harmonics, while not being able to play even the most simple chord progression or anything beyond the pentatonic scale. You don't wanna end up like this, do you? Wrong practice can really harm your playing.

I'm going to add to this. Advanced techniques usually build on more basic techniques. If your basic technique is sh*t, you won't get the advanced technique down.
#31
Yep, imagine it like building a house: You cannot build the roof if the walls aren't ready yet (basic skills being the walls, advanced once being the roof).

Damn that metaphor works for everything.
