  1. Well, you will find it dumb cause you know this, but I thought it was cool. I was dinking around with harmonics. I found that the 5th fret, 4th fret, and 3rd fret harmonics make a major triad! That is beyond cool.

    Or D maj chord

    A/F#/D harmonics on the A/D/G strings

    in drop D, it's REALLY nice.
  6. More crazyness! The harmonic between the second and third frets make a dominant seventh chord when combined wiht 5th, 4th, and 3rd. Oh wow. This is neat!

    When David Letterman was on NBC, Will Lee used to play the NBC "N-B-C" in the outro using these harmonics. N-B-C is an inverted triad.
