    Fret at the second fret of the A string with your index, then touch the node at the sixth fret with your pinky. No shortcuts; you just have to stretch. Sorry.

    ah, but there is a shortcut. you fret the B on the A string, lightly touch the string with your plucking thumb somewhere above the neck pickup (Experiment till you get the right place) and pluch the false harmonic D# with either of your other plucking fingers, but the farther away from your thumb you can get, the better. This trick I think jaco shows on one of his videos or something.

    keep on groovin'
