if you can , use the tremolo (I don't know if you have one), otherwise, bend the note

Heavy vibrato does the trick. Tremolo bar if you have one. Also more gain/distortion helps, along with high output pickups/amp, place where you pick the string, and how heavy your pick attack is will contribute to it.

If you're like me and have a super heavy pick attack (I watch too many Zakk Wylde videos ) then they won't be too hard. A lot of it's gear and EQ. Single coils won't pick them up very well either.

You know how to do artificial harmonics but you can't do vibratos, you serious? Do the harmonic then do a vibrato, you don't need to use the trem bar unless you want to do a satch type squeal.

i can do vibrato on a normal note but it sounds weak on a harmonic

Just vibrato the string with your left hand at the same time you pick the harmonic

also i have problems with my pick right hand position--- normally i learned to grip it in a way so that like a quarter inch of the pick would be showing but pinch harmonics require like you have 3 millimiters showing and i keep starting the solo with the "wrong" pick position so when the pinch harmonic comes up im ******

REALLY HEAVY vibrato helps loads (I usally bend my pinch harmonics about 1.5 steps) Just wiggle it back and forth at varying speeds until you get the desired tone. In that video it sounds like he bend the note before sounding the pinch harmonic so you could also try: bend->p.h.->release.

Learn to roll your thumb between those two positions on the pick.

It's hard to explain, but most of what is said here is the best way to explain it. Attack the string(s) and do a vibrato at the same time as when you hit the harmonic. I use a medium pick (.73-.78) and 10 gauge (10-46) strings. Hope that helps.

You should, it helps to play fast with very little of your pick showing.
