I'm probably wrong on this, but the intro to "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam has that bass riff followed by a couple of harmonics on the twelfth fret. I'm not sure if the harmonics are on the bass or a guitar
The Pit. The Movie.

They were recorded on guitar, but I can play them on bass - they're around the 5th and 7th frets, as is the riff itself.

Don't forget that droning backline to Okonkole Y Trompa. Also, Empty Glass by Pete Townshend - lotta harmonics in that intro.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

It's on 12 string but the harmonics are played on guitar.

a couple of dream theatre songs have them, but i can't think of any specific songs.


The intro to The Glass Prison has one or two, though that isn't great practise. More just an example of the 'bell' sound being intergrated.

"Lifting Shadows of a Dream" is a great one (though you might need a six-string bass). It can also help improving skills to get up to "Portrait of Tracy"

Birdland by Weather Report. I swear this crazy motherfunker makes his bass sound like a guitar!

To be honest, once you have a good feel for the touch and finger posistioning of harmonics, PoT isn't that hard at all.

try norwegian wood redone by victor wooten, if you can play that props to you, it's quite hard.

it's probably too hard if you just started with harmonics.
