Essentially you should try first fretting the G string on the 7th fret, when picking you should try to hold your pick 2mm from the side of your thumb, after picking you should try to touch the string as quickly as possible with the tip of your thumb directly behind your bridge pickup.
Pitch depends on the node pinched, meaning if you fret the 7th on the G string and pinch the node in front of the middle pick-up you'll get a tone equal to a 3.2 open harmonic and such.
If that was confusing here's the vid I learned from:
it's a long vid but very instructional.
pinch Harmonicsby chcrush27
How Exactly should you do it
id say practive on an acoustic...thats what i did and it was extremely hard...but now i can play pinch harmonics incredibly well.
Excellent lesson. I learned it in an instant. I always wondered hoe it was done. Wylde overuses it.
After I learned this I eploited the hell out of every pinch I made, like my friend would play a riff, then I'd play it insert a couple pnches call it my own and have him get really pissed.
One thing you don't see often enough is the emphasis on where to employ artificial harmonics. Maybe give a quick description of the differences of the pitch when you move the area where you pick (up and down the strings).
All very good except for one tiny thing - pinch harmonics are NOT easier on a single coil guitar (i.e. Strat). They are way easier to execute on humbuckers because these are more powerful pickups that make the harmonic come through stronger.
I strongly concur with Afro...
I meant it's easier because of the placement, I guess it works with mine because my bridge pickup is a double humbucker.
@ the pusher
what if u hold the pick with 3fingers :) i pinch with my index.
Is there a good way to really get it down if I don't own an acoustic
