Forced Harmonics

Here is a cool technique that really enhances your playing.

They are called Forced Harmonics.

Forced harmonics are used to imitate a cry or squeal.

They are 'pinched' by playing with the pick and touching a string with your thumb.

By using lots of distortion and compression you can really enhance the squeals.

Do you have some guitar knowledge to share or have a question?

You can Write to me!

Include your first initial and last name and put the word GUITAR in the subject.

I'll try to use your contribution in a future column.

(Please note that these columns are written several weeks in advance so publishing it will be delayed accordingly.)
