In this lesson I'm going to demonstrate the basic technique behind pinch harmonics. Right after you hit the string with your pick you want to hit it with the side of your right hand thumb. At first this may result in a dead note, but when you start to move it around horizontally you'll eventually stumble across some screechy and high-pitched harmonics.
