uhh sorry man. Youll need the pickups (Bill Lawrence or Dimebucker), youll need a very high gain (preferably solid state because dime used them in the pantera days) amplifier and pedal. Dimebag used different strings for different albums, some he used low gauge, some he used higher gauge strings.

You could try, but really a dean would help you get there quicker. My dean and randall are the perfect dimebag combo.

In all due seriousness, the way dime would do those super high harmonics is he would use his Floyd Rose trem(which a Les Paul does not have) to slack the strings, then he would hit a harmonic and raise the pitch back up. This technique is difficult, and requires a Floyd. But the kind of string you use has nothing to do with it.

Ohh youre talking about dime squeals. Theyre not hard at all, I use natural harmonics for those. They work as good as hitting a pinched and raising it.

I gave up on you after I read that.

I had one of my own and played through it and wanted to kill myself.
My old Ibanez INF1 was better than that.

I'm not being a hater on it out of bandwagon...I personally owned one.

Isn't that all he used to do them anyway??

^Yeah, there's no other way... Good luck catching a pinch harmonic when bringing the Floyd back up.

...I guess you could do a tap harmonic, but that's natural too.

I wont start anything with you... to each his own opinion

you COULD catch and raise a pinch with a floyd.. but its ridiculously hard. I can barely get the hang of it

Huh? I must know- how do you pinch on a fully slackened string?

Well, on a FULLY slackened string, that's impossible, there's not enough tension for any adequate vibration to ring through.

On a near fully slackened string, you can get a harmonic, but it's VERY hard to hit the right spot seeing as the vibration will have to be JUST right to get it to sustain.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Or pickup... or guitar amp. They influence it slightly, but it comes down to your technique.

EDIT: Part of why Dime could get those squeels also had something to do with it's not hard at all when you have Gibson-scale guitar that's tuned down.

I agree with the high gain, but you think the equipment is what made the player?
