    Hi all.

    After seeing a transcription for victor wootens norweiegen wood I decided to have a go at it. anyway, after printing it off and taking it to my room it hit me; 'this harmonics a G, but where do I 'fret' to make a G harmoinc at that pitch.

    I've enclosed a snippit from the song. "harmonics are noted 1 octave lower than they sound".

    Thanks for any help!

    Here's one web site that lists harmonics (click "Lessons", then Lesson #9)

    Perhaps others can chime in with other info.
