So I'm working on my harmonics, and I've been using them for years, but recently I'm working out Excuse Me, Mr. Manring, and He uses a lot of barred harmonics, and they're behind the "usual" 3rd, 4th, and 5th fret harmonics, and When I play the higher harmonics, they don't ring out nearly as much as they do in This video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3ilX...eature=mh_lolz
I know that a huge part is just practice, and knowing where they are precisely, especially with those higher ones that are so narrow, but are there any tips on how to get those harmonics to ring like Mr. Manring does? The bass probably plays a role, although I know I should be able to get them to ring without having a Zon.
So basically, as I see it, the reason they don't ring for me I attribute to the following:
-I need to practice more to know EXACTLY where the sweet spot is for those harmonics,
-Maybe some technique stuff that I'm doing less than optimally,
-Perhaps the fact that my strings are a little dead. Not terribly OLD, but I've been playing for several hours every day for a few months, so I'd expect them to go dead faster. In any case, I imagine that Fresh Steels would help?
But anyway, That's my situation. Is there anything anyone can offer that would help with the clarity and volume of those higher harmonics?
