notating harmonics

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by harley_ou812, Dec 12, 2001.


  1. Well I have recently gotten into standard notation( I am extremly happy that i did) and I started wondering how do you notate harmonics in standrd notation? This is something that i have been pondering. I know in tab they will put the # and an h above it wich doesnt work for all harmonics due to harmonics not all falling on frets. I am sure someone one here wil be able to answer my question and I thank you if you can.

    I think it's a diamond shape on the note stem - although it's been a while since i've seen them?

    See if this helps anyway

    You notate it with a diamond instead if circle. You put it where the note sounds NOT where it is played. It is up to the musician to find which position will produse the desirted tone. Do you understand what I'm saying?
