    I need to know the eaises and fastest way to do AH. I don't even know how to do em in the first place. and i don't use a pick. give me some info please people.
  2. Do you mean Artificial Harmonics. I play them the way most fingerstyle guitarists would. Actually, it's easier to visual if you refer to them as Pinched Harmonics, which is exactly how you would play them. You mute the string gently at the top using the outer part of your thumb whilst plucking with either the index or middle finger.

    For inspiration watch someone like Mark Knopfler or check out the Wilko Jonhson band. He's a fingerstyle guitarist and as a major plus, the bassist in his band is Norman Watt-Roy, of Ian Dury and the Blockheads Fame. Now there's a bass player!
