cause I can't get a decent ****ing P.H. on the 6th string!!! I been at it for over a month straight with only minimal results. I've become much better at every other string, but the 6th string is an illusive bastard. I have plenty of gain, so that's not the issue. The issue my technique.

Are there any vids of explaining how to do the 6th string? I've tried the diaganol angle attack as well. I need HELP!!!

More practice? Thinner strings? or maybe thicker would be better. Just some suggestions.

Remember, hit the string with the pick slanted. That might help if you didn't know.

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

uhm, you might want to vibrato your pinches more on the 6th string than the other ones

EDIT: 52's? it took me a while to be able to pinch my 56's the way i wanted it to sound

You have a decent amount of gain? If so i can only think that your string is old.

i'd say use a 7 or 8 string... but i doubt you'd wanna pay lotsa money, just to be able to get a P.H. easier on the 6th string!

sorry, i dont have any good suggestions, i havnt slept last night

I am hitting it slanted. It pisses me off cause I let someone play with my guitar and they nail em!

higher gauge, practice on doing more gentle p.h. on it.


serious business

forget about the gauge if you already have

My strings are fine, and I'm running a Dean CFH through a Soldano Avenger through a Vader 2x15, PLUS an MXR 10-band eq with the mids boosted.

Another thing. Try practicing with different pickup positions

The weird thing is that when I use 2 single coils [so I mean when I use the neck single coil and the bridge single coil] I get better P.H's. Also try p.h.'ing in different places of your picking range

Crazy Cunt.
Seriously though, if you can't do it, then try a different harmonic spot.
I can do the Floods solo by pantera all in Artificial harmonics.

How consistently can you do pinches on the other strings? If you can do it really well on the others, it shouldn't be too much harder on the low E. I play em on the 3rd fret, crank that gain and add vibrato to make em sound good. Use your bridge pickup

This. Hold a fret and try doing the pinch while moving your picking hand up and down the string until you find a spot that will sound a harmonic.
