Okay so with pinches there's nodal points on the string where you strike with the pick buuuuuutttt... What I'm wondering is: Does the nodal points on the string change depending on where I'm fretting?

For example if I fret at 7 and do a pinch harmonic, then I go for one at 12 or something, will I have to find a new nodal point? Or will it stay the same?

I use the same nodal point no matter what fret i'm playing.

Yes, as you effectively change the length of the string by fretting it, the location of the harmonic would change. It's all physics.

However, I do the same thing as the guy above me so lol.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

They change. To find the same octave of a harmonic on a higher fret, it usually moves upward...and to find the same octave lower it moves down the string.... Higher pitches are higher up, just think of it that way.

yes, it'll move.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

To elbourate slightly:

Yes they do move but don't worry about it that much, with practice you'll be able to get the one you want without even pausing for breath, let alone actually thinking about it.

If you always pinch on the same spot some of your harmonics are going to sound way more aggressive than others. You're probably using different points automatically.

It's great that there's multiple points for pinch harmonics, sometimes during a solo I play a lick all pinch harmonics in one area and then play the same riff with pinch harmonics closer to the bridge. Totally different sound but the left hand is doing the same.
