I think you'll find natural harmonics at the 17th and 19th also... but I don't have my bass with me to prove it.

You could learn to do artificial harmonics and have them everywhere at every fret, even do the fretless double stop sliding harmonic thing a la Steve Bailey.

Why don't you just try playing harmonics at every fret and see which frets produce clear natural harmonic? It probably would have been quicker than posting about it.

17th at E string i dont know what it is but 19th is a B.

Artificial harmonics aint my thing. I think natural sounds smoother.
