  1. DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY TIPS OR IDEAS ON HOW STEVE BAILEY PULLS OFF THOSE HARMONICS WITH HIS MIDDLE FINGER ON HIS LEFT HAND? I CAN'T GET IT!

    hey there.

    he touches the string halfway between the bridge and the fretted note, with his index finger, and then plucks with his middle finger. just takes practice.

    helps if you have some kind of distortion, to accentuate the higher harmonics, and some compression to help keep everything the same volume.
