I'm in the process of learning this song by Andy Mckee. But the tapped harmonics that start at 0:21 seconds are kicking my ass Can anyone explain how he just barely touches the string and gets a full sound out of it?

He is actually touching the string with the tip of his index finger and then using another finger or thumb to puck underneath his hand so that you can't see it.

Thank you very much. I tried it and it's working. Just have to get better at it.
