Guitar Techniques Tab

   
By Michael Murphy aka Gnome

-Pinch Harmonic-
The pinch harmonic or "pick" harmonic is done by not letting the
string vibrate at all when you pick it.  By doing this it gives 
you a little scream.  This technique is best done on frets 3, 5,
7, 9, 12, and sometimes 15.  All this depends on your guitar.
What most people do is put very little pick out, and alot of thumb
so that when they pick the string does not vibrate because the thumb
doesn't allow the string to vibrate.  Below is a good song to use
pick harmonics.  Make sure your treble is up high.  If you have a
wah pedal turn that on it helps when learning, it boosts treble.

-Natural Harmonics-
The goal is to not let the string vibrate as much although its
almost opposite as the pinch harmonic, you do this technique on the
neck.  You pretty much put your finger as a mute on the string.  It
works best if you barely put pressure on the string.  I can't
really explain this very well, just take a look at this next song
to try it on.  Add an echo or reverb it helps.

-Sweep-
A sweep isn't really a technique but I added it in here for fun.
Yngwie, Vai, and Satch all use this alot, but they really know what
they are doing, I don't.  I'll give an example of how to do a sweep
and you can kinda see how to do it from there on your own.  I made
this up here, it kinda sucks, but its something to work with.

-Finger Taps-
A finger tap is done by using hammer ons and pulls offs with your
left hand, and tapping the edge of your pick on the neck at a
certain fret.  I am horrible at explaining stuff, so I will show
you a very basic tap used ALOT by everyone including Van Halen.
