Well, i've been playing alot of KsE recently, and like they do, they use a lot of pinch harmonics on the thick E string, but whenever i play it, i never get a clean sound like when i do a PH on another string..

Anyone know how to improve the sound ?

Thnks !
When I try to get pinches on the thick E string, I have to hold the pick differently. I have less of the pick exposed to my thumb is closer to the string

You also need a lot of treble and presence, and make sure your guitar is well set up. Fretting out will kill your pinch harmonics.

EDIT: ^ don't dig in that hard, just enough to get that squeal. If you dig in too much, you'll probably end up muting it with your thumb unless you're real careful.

Practice doing them on a clean setting. I know it doesn't sound as cool but playing with a ton of gain will make you practice less once your able to achieve a decent PH. If you practice to the point where you can get goo PH's anytime you want on a clean setting, then you'll be golden when you've moved up to a gain channel. Good luck

Practice them on a clean channel. Get them good so the notes sound like clicks. Them do it with Distortion.
