Okay, I know what pinch harmonics are and I know how to do them.. The thing is, on my low E string, it's really hard to do them... The farther down the I go on the low E, the harder they are to do.. Do you guys think it could be my pickups/amp? I'm using the Omen 6 Schecter with a Roland 15X Cube...

Like that, those squeals are perfect every time, how do I sound like that?

have you tried pinching nearer the bridge? it works better like that on the low E (or C for me lol) also its 99.9% technique, amps etc dont help you get them.

also you get +100 coolpoints for liking KSE

just move you "pinch" around the sweet spot is different on every string on every fret, you just have to know where abouts it is to get it to really sqeal out, it just takes practice....

i prefer dive bomb squealies (like dime did) they sound so awsome

I tried all around the low E. On the other string, it's not hard at all, I know the sweet spot and everything but for the low E it just seems so hard. I can get a squeal out of it, but it's just not as "squealy" as in that video..

Oh and KSE is badass.

Needs more thumb!

If you're having trouble getting the squeal out, you need to either use more thumb to mute the note or less thumb to not mute the squeal.

I was in the exact same situation about a month ago, I could do them on the E, B and G, but on the rest.
The technique is really different for the thicker strings, try using a sharper pick, new strings always help. You've also got to dig in a lot more, tilt the pick too.

To sum up: More gain, more thumb, more dig.
