Artificial Harmonics are actually where you fret a note eg. fret 12, then place a finger lightly on the string above it at another specified fret eg. 24 say, then pluck the note with the pick. I learned that from total guitar magazine

eg.
A|---------
E|-12------
AH 24

hehehe - no, in the back of total guitar magazine it has a full guide to all the different notations for different techniques on guitar, and it shows all 5 types of harmonics and how to do em - not bad for 3

What do you mean by closed? Like the pedal all the way down or up, because I don't know anything about wah pedals and I just got the Morley Bad Horsie 2 one and going to start learning to use it. Oh yeah sorry this si off topic, but what's the difference with regular wah and contour because it says that mine has both. I don't hear much of a difference either.

Personally i play pinch harmonics with my LITTLE finger because of the speed of the stuff I play, I hold the pick between my thumb and my first two fingers (otherwise I get sweaty and drop them at gigs)

I personally wouldnt recommend anyone trying pinch harmonics with any other finger besides their thumb - using thumb seems to allow for much better transition from normal picking to a pinch harmonic. The thumb should be close to the picking point of the pick so a slight twist of the wrist will allow the thumb surface to brush the string ever so slightly. I have noticed that heavier strings require a more aggressive (for lack of a better term) brush against the strings compared to the higher strings which require a very delicate touch. Also, each seperate note on each string requires different pressure than the lower or higher notes next to it. This isnt really an issue as you sort of develop a "finger memory." Pickups with more output and distortion levels are a big help. With my Duncan Invader pickup and metalzone pedal I can tremelo pick while hitting a pinch harmonic on each pick - sounds crazy.

These are my personal observations - pretty much just stating what has been said before, hah. If I can I will try to post some images of how I hold my pick and the whole wrist twist in action (not talking about masturbating, haha)

Question

I'm really surprised : everybody seems to consider ph/ah as an advanced tech... but it took me less than ten minutes of practice to do it, so when some of you say it's 3 or 4 years to learn it........ .........even if it's harder than tapping or such things...

tapping is fucking easy compared to pinch harmonics. tapping doesn't really take any technique at all. you tap the fucking fretboard and get a sound. pinch harmonics are pretty advanced you fuckhead. they actually require you to have some sort of skill. fuck man, i could give my guitar to my 5 year old niece and SHE could fuckin tap on it. i don't think there is any chance in hell that she could pull out a pinch harmonic.

I do not pretend that tapping is an advanced tech... i just say pinch hamornics seemed really easy to me and i don't think that a technique you can learn in ten minutes is an advanced one...

Hey, i thought pinch harmonics would be hard. then i practiced it. I caught on real easy with practice. what ended up working for me was connecting the string wtih the corner of my thunb and the pick. Holding the pick you will see a V or a corner that your thumb and the pick makes. if you put the string in this corner, you can hold in there even, and then just push off and you shold get your artificial harmonic. It is easier done than said i believe. just try this untill you get a feel for it. Eventually, you will be able to do this up and down. you can then trem pick pinch harmonics like me. Id try to explain better but i have a women to deal with right now so maybe some other time.

pinch harmonics get hard when you are playing fast with notes blending
normally hit notes with A.H.-ed notes

Lightbulb Pinch and Natural Harmonics

Natural Harmonics (suggested you are a righty): Take left hand and barely touch the string with your finger(s). Pick as normal and you should get a kind of "twangy" sound. Try this on the 3rd, 5th, and 12th frets for best results. (Example: Verse of "Ravenous" by Arch Enemy")

Pinch Harmonics (suggested you are a righty): These are more difficult than Natural Harmonics and will take time to learn. Push down on any note on the fret board with your left hand. Now, pick the string with your pick and a small piece of your thumb, which will again make a "twangy" sound. If you use too much thumb, the harmonic won't work. Once you get good with Pinch Harmonics, add a little Vibrato to it to get that sound used in common metal songs. (Example: Verse of "Thoughts Without Words" by Shadows Fall)

If there are any more questions, e-mail me.

Deep pinch harmonics

Hey guys ive been having a hard time doing pinch harmonics on deeper strings, mostly A, not many pinches are on E. Whats your approach to doing pinches on the A string? Mine never come out quite right, thanks guys.
