View Full Version : Pinch Harmonics dos

So i made a thread a bit ago about how i couldn't do them, so i practiced a bit and i got em down. Swell. My question to you is how do i switch to them quicker in normal playing? I typically have to hold the pick a lot closer to get the harmonic, and I definitely don't strum like that.

try playing in general with less of your pick showing. it will improve your speed as well as let you articulate your notes better.

but if you find that too big of a change than what you already do now, one thing you could do is slightly turn your hand while doing a PH with your pinky side of the hand going away from the guitar and the thumb going closer to it.

another thing you could do is slightly roll your thumb down the pick instead of full on moving it down. if you hold your pick with a lot of the picking end showing, this probably wont work well but it'll help for sure since it takes virtually no time to just roll your thumb a bit.
