Introduction to Pinch Harmonics

Lesson Info

In this tutorial we're going to explore another lead technique that is very common in rock lead playing. This is the technique where you hit the strings with your thumb along with your pick to create a screeching harmonic. It's called "pinch harmonics", and I'm sure you'll recognize the sound of it. Some players use pinch harmonics in a very calculated and controlled way while others use it more loosely. In this tutorial we'll explore the basic technique and the different approaches in some fun and rockin' examples!
