How do I do a "pinch harmonic"?


and what exactly is a trill, and how would I do one?

If I remember correctly, you hold the pick with the tip of it VERY close to your fingers. Then, you pick a note, and your thumb should immediately touch the string causing a pinched harmonic.

I may be wrong, but I'm going by a fuzzy memory.

Skold is pretty much right. You can just play a note... After a little experimentation, the B (7th fret) of the low E string is a good choice. Play the note, then tap the string with your pick or finger. Doing this softly and quickly enough will give you a much higher pitched sound. That should give you the idea of what it does, and for actual playing technique do what Skold said.

k, a pinch harmonic is basicly picking the string, the imediatly hitting it with ur thumb, lightly tap it. leave almost no pick showing, ao tht if u look at it at eye level, ur thumb covers it, but if u turn it up the u can see the pick. the play. a trill is just hammering off and pulling on 2 or more notes fast.

When I do it, its when I pick a note and my skin hits the string with the pick.
It's so fun to do but it DOES take a bit of practice.

its tons of fun also somthing to try if u dont got whammy, take one hnd and push down on the body of the guitar, and push up on the neck, the harmonic gets lower its awsome, like a whammy, detunes everything.

I always play pinch harmonics in fast solos by mistake but the end result is pretty cool.

@Ironman: a TRILL is two, three or more notes played right after the other
nevermind me just watch


I love playing those pentatonic trills just like SRV.

What I got out of "trill" was:

It's like a serious of hammer ons and pull offs, really fast, sometimes a bit slower,

Like:

A: 7p5h7p5h7p5h7h8p5h7h8p5h7h8p5 etc.

Dont get discouraged those guitar players are intermediate-advanced. I could tell you that wasnt too hard and it doesent have a lot of trills. Guitarboy described it well when he wrote the tab.



The beggining of Thunderstruck is the longest trill I've heard.

it's not a trill, it's a constanat tremolo picking tecnique. If you want to look up trills Black Sabbath is a good song with trills in the main riff.

No, trilling is hammering on and pulling off. Thunderstruck would indeed be one example. DarkRiff, Tremolo picking is just picking rapidly.

There's always a reason why these guys aren't famous.

Also, his vibrato isn't that good. :P

@Dark Riff I wasnt 100% sure that the intro to Thunderstruck was a trill but in one video (the Donnington one) he plays without picking the strings so that made me believe it was a trill.

look at 0:15
If thats not a trill then I have learned something new.

Edit: I have learned something new: its not picking nor trilling its just plain old hammer on and pull of.
I actually saw it again and it looks like he never picks a note for like a while.

So it is a trill? I'm confused.

i thought tremolo is alternate speed picking while changing notes.

thunderstuck is pure hammerons and pulls, its acctually a finger excersize tht was on the b and e string. it sounded better on just the b, i do it both ways, just to help hammer ons and pull offs, no picking.

Thunderstuck isnt a trill
its just a long legato line

a trill is a series of rapid hammerons and pulloff between 2 notes

Yeah, you're right. Thunderstruck is just legato.
