    The video of Abe and Stanley playing Campo Americano from StanleyClarke.com 's video section is amazing....

    2 technique things:
    1) how does Stanley do that cool false harmonic thing? is that what he's doing? what's going on?

    2) what is Abe doing when he's striking the string with the back of his hand? he's an amazing player, such energy!

    thanks in advance-

    I've seen stanley clarke in concert (front row in a SMALL venue, btw :p ) And he uses his index and middle finger to press down the harmonic(s) and his ring and pinky the pluck the strings.
