A natural harmonic is performed by forcing the string to vibrate with half it wavelength, or some other integer split. Common "harmonic places" are 5th, 7th, 9th and 12th.
If you fret a string on the (n)th fret, then you can place the "harmonic-finger" on the (n+12)th (or n+5 or n+7 or n+9) fret, to get a proper harmonic. Then there's also the option of forcing a harmonic, ie strumming so hard that you get some sound even though you're not placing your "harmonic finger" on a good spot. This is of course easier with lots of dist and so on.
This also applies for artificial/pinch harmonics. To get a higher pitched squeal, find a 5th or 9th (or whatever) of the strings length (the part that is not stopped by fretting fingers).

I can admit that I learnt how to do artificial harmonics (and succeded in performing them on my acoustic guitar (don't have an electric guitar)) from this thread, but the theoritics about harmonics in general is stuff I learnt ages ago (like 5 years).



Yeah i've Pinched a Nylon string before, it sounds cool, its not loud, but it still works

natural : listen to the begining of Metallica - sanitarium

artificial : pantera- cimetery gates (the "heavy" riff when the guitar screams)

(listen to those songs, while following the tab, it helps to see when)

hope i helped you

a good thing to remember is that natural harmonics mirror, that is, a harmonic on fret 7 is the same as fret 19 (they are both a 3rd division of the neck)

using this, you can learn pinch harmonics easier, i.e. play a natural harmonic at around fret 3.3 (thats inside the fret, hunt around for it)

then transfer this harmonic to the string near the bridge; titll be the same distance from the bridge, as the 3.3 is from the nut

hope this helps!

The octave N.H. you get on the 5th fret is twice as high on the 17th fret. 3x the
orignal string

Trey Azagthoth uses huge bends and crazy vibrato with his harmonics to make them sound that sick. He also does some really crazy techniques with the floyd rose tremolo.

when practicing songs that have A.H.'s in them, i sometimes fail and end up with a strange wah-ish half-harmonic sound...which sounds really nice(hehe), anyone know what those are called? its when your finger doesnt touch the string enough and it makes it kinda vibrate

try using this technique for that squeaky sound...if you hold the pick in b/w ur thumb & middle finger, then use your index finger to touch the string while picking at the same time...then use a vibrato to pull the harmonic off more effectively......this one is a bit more dificult than the other technique, but far more effective once you master it

I've been trying to perfect that song for a while now. Heh, needless to say, it's a pain in the ass...especially playing it on a Gibson, lol.

there hard at first but once you get them down there pretty easy. if im lucky i can get a whole string of pinch harmonics going on all the strings on any fret below like 7 or something. the pinch harmonics on the 6th's string is the hardest to do but sounds the weirdest.

Yeah, it took me quite some time to get to grips with em, but once you get the technique down, it gets way easier. Now my hands kinda remember where to hit the string to get the harmonic depending on where my hands are on the neck :S It's pretty cool.

Memnoch: Thanks for the Idea!! I never really thought of doing them upstroke before - a tremolo picked pinched harmonic riff would sound fucking evil! Im gonna get practicing!
