Pinch harmonics occur at the nodes, and there is a reflection point at the twelve fret. That means that any harmonic you can play below the 12 fret, you can mirror over the 12 + area. As well, make sure you are fretting a note lower than the 12th fret, or the pitch of the harmonic won't vary much from the pitch of the fretted note.

Last, the best way to develop consistency is to practice one pinch, one straight, one pinch, one straight. Once you've practiced all downpicks, and have that nailed (ie sometime next year) it's time to learn up picking, ie using the flesh on your index finger. Nobody can do that but me and my students

I gotta learn how to do tremelo pinch harmonics. I need to know that to be able to play Intentional Manslaughter by Dying Fetus.

Do you have any advice for up picked PHs?

Hey i have a semi on topic question. I always hold my pick with two fingers not including my thumb. I seem to be able to do pinch harmonics like this but does holding the pick with two fingers hurt my over all speed or accuracy? Or not because i seem to be able to still do harmonics and tremolo picking and triplets just as fast as anyone else.

I guess whatever is most comfortable for you.
But if you try it with just one fingure not including your thumb, then I'll bet you get more speed.

Yup, DELETE79 has pretty good tips. Everyone is different it has a lot to do with the position and place of your hand and the distortion you have. Are mid or scooped settings better for pinch harmonics?

I've been playing for almost 5 years. I taught myself and I must say my style is pretty unprofessional, it's good, but I'm theoretically dumb. Please explain to me in the least harsh of ways, what the hell is a triplet?

Only have a tiny amount of the tip of the pick sticking out from beyond your thumb. That is the key.

A.H or P.H Whatever you want to call em

I have been able to do what I call artificial harmonics since I was 16 thats about 9 years. I also am able to tremlo pick while doing A.H.'s This technique was especially useful when I wanted to get the sound from 5 Minutes Alone (the part that has the slow bend and high sqeal) but not have to go way up on the board. Did it on the B string 17th fret with and A.H. rather than the thin E 19th fret. It ended up sounding more like the song and was easier to do. Anyway my technique is to use the thumb or thumb and index when tremlo picking. But like all others said it makes a big difference where you pick at. It also will be easier to use this technique if they are aiming to play fast or something like Pantera. Just thought I would share my thoughts

Yes, I struggled for ages and when I changed the way I held my pick (with only the tip sticking out), I got it almost instantly.

Its not just a matter of how you do it, it is where you do it, i find my pinch harmonics on GBE strings sounds better when done over the neck pickup and i can do EAD strings virtually anywhere.

I have trouble hitting them on the B and e strings, but can get pretty much all of the others.

To the earlier threads: I didnt see this mentioned... Try out different picks, they have a huge effect on the difficulty of PH's.
