 Post subject: a question about pinched harmonics...
PostPosted: Tue May 10, 2005 2:28 pm 
to either leon or lee...

first off, you guys where brilliant live!

i noticed when you guys played wrath of god you used tremolo arms to accentuate the first piched squeal. i always wondered how that was done. but how exactly do you make that wwweeeeeoooww sound?

sorry if this sounds a bit geeky!

Hi there,

yeah i use the tremolo to play the harmonic in that song, but lee just does a normal harmonic and bends the string in the usual way, he doesn't use the bar.

Basically all I do is play a natural harmonic and bend it up with the bar, dead simple basically.

cheers for coming to see us too

for quite a lot of the harmonics, i dont play a "pinch harmonic" (ie, holding the pick in that pinched way while you pick the string) at all. i rest the third finger (ring finger) of my right hand on the string as i pick that note in the normal way. which gives a similar sound to pinch harmonics, but the attack isn't as harsh.
