You should just learn bit more bout music theory. Harmonies are easy to do...well, at least easier than most of the other stuff. You dont even need your guitar to write beautiful harmonies, if you know enough about theory, you just will know what will sound good.

Most neoclassical, gothic, and melodic bands harmonize guitars with different notes. Using mostly the third interval. Both the minor three (three half steps), and the major three (4 half steps). Also the five half step interval (perfect forth) sounds good. I know some bands that use the seven step interval (perfect fifth) at times. It sounds good as well. Does anyone know of any bands that use the 2 step interval (Major second) and the six half step interval (Dim)?

Using fifth intervals sound really sad and hallow to me. Especially the 1,5,7. GraveWorm uses the fifth interval a lot in soloing, melodies, and harmonizing. The Major Second interval sounds evil especially 1,2,7. Has anyone tried harmonzing dim stuff. That sound is so uncomforting.

I have..

I think it sounds sick as fuck esp in a DM feel. I also think it sounds cool when your harmonizing and you change intervals somewhere within the lines. Like I have one piece written in the diminished scale and shifts halfway through the riff from a perfect 4th to a dim 5th. Maiden shifted harmonizing intervals alot too, that's where I got the idea.

Cradle of Filth does a lot of interval changing harmonizing like from 4th's (5 half steps), to 5 (7 half steps), to 3rds (3 or 4 half steps). It sounds pretty sweet as well. I like Cradle of Filth better than GraveWorm because GraveWorm guitars are just power chords 90% of the time with the keyboard acting as the leads. Cradle of Filth are more creative and have better song structures.

Which 2 are you talking about? m2 (1 half step) or the M2 (2 half steps). The M2 sounds pretty good in harmonizing but the m2 doesn't sound good for me. You don't like harmonzing in M2? Also playing Sus2 chords sound bad in m2 interval but sound good in M2. Dim 5 (6 half steps) don't sound well as well. It is the most uncomfortable sound I've heard in my life. No wonder why in movies or shows when a bad person emerges they start playing dim intervals! The dim makes you think that the person is evil! Everything else sounds good because the m3 or M6 or, M3 or m6, and P5 or P4, M2 or m7 intervals which are all the intervals except for teh dim 5, m2 or M7. It depends on where you take the root as.
