OOOOOKAYYYY how i do a pinch harmonic-
bridge pup selected.
once we have that done, what you do it you is choke up on your pick and pluck the string in such a way that your thumb hits the string right after your pick. what happens is that squeal.
you'll have to play with a bunch of things that determine how your harmonic sounds. such as where you're plucking the string....it usually works best in between the pickups but closer to the bridge. at least for me.
also, you'll need to play with how you hold/pluck the sting to get the best tone.
basically its alot of playing around before you figure out how it works best. once you get all that down, you can do pinch harmonics on cue.
