Sounds like you're talking about pinch harmonics.

There's a couple good articles on the main site, in the forums, and a couple good vids on youtube about it, but essentially when you pick a note, you gently brush the edge of your thumb against the string, just for a moment, and instead of the normal note you get this high ringing tone. Every guitar has a different "sweet spot" for hitting em, usually between the bridge and neck pickups. Generally you'd combine a pinch with a vibrato to give it some tone.

Search "pinch harmonic" on youtube, there's a few good tutorials.
