    Just curious how people are doing thier 12th fret harmonics.

    myself I use my thumb and index finger and sometimes my middle finger. I also try and mix up some chords with the harmonics.

    The latest thing I 've been trying is to get a 12 fret harmonic chord. Just starting off with two string 5th, 4th or 3rd. any ideas? has anybody tried this before?

    Shameless plug warning!

    I like to implement harmonics in my playing. It's really fun, and not that hard to do. I like to use harmonics with "normal" root-notes, or use harmonic pedals, etc. There's a lot you can do.

    Now for the shameless plug! :D

    Hear me dabble around with some harmonics.
