This Is Why You Suck at Guitar: Your Pinch Harmonics Suck!
Pinch harmonics, pick squeals, squeallies, whatever you call them... you suck at them.

In this lesson video, Uncle Ben is going to teach you the way to get your guitar squealing louder than Zakk Wylde's hog farm. All aspects of the technique are covered in this installment of the now-legendary "This is Why You Suck at Guitar" lesson series.

We are going to explore the optimum way to set up your amp, how to hold the pick, and a weird trick involving a Sharpie to get you nailing pinch harmonics. Your guitar is going to be squealing like your Aunt Julie on a 2 Live Crew tour bus. So buckle up, grab an axe, and let's get to work!
