Touch Harmonic Blues
Just a blues lick with harmonics in Am.
(H)= Touch string lightly over fret to get harmonic
R= Reverse bend
h= hammer on
p= pull off
Nothing great but cool for beginners.
That sounds really cool! I didn't know how to make that sound you get when it goes really high up like that! thanks for sharing!
Thanks man. Glad you liked it.
Those high pitch sounds are called pinch harmonics. The way you do this by lightly, and i mean LIGHTLY touch the string with the flesh of your thumb after you hit it with the pick. it only works in a few spots, but he found a couple.
Actually it's NOT a pinch harmonic. As you said a pinch harmonic is done by using your thumb as you pick the note. I am picking the note then touching the string 12 or 5 frets above the note. It's more a natural harmonic. As far as pinch harmonics working in a few spots, it works in 5 main spots that give a 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and octave scale degree simply by applying the pinch technique various places on the string.
