Bingo!! The pinch harmonic is a core techique that will serve you well. It's used in pretty much every rock/metal solo you've ever heard or ever will hear to one degree or another. I love doing it. I spent a LOT of time working on it so that I can get squeals pretty much anywhere and any time I like, of course this can lead to overuse of the technique which I"ve certainly been guilty of at times smile.gif It's like putting a period at the end of a sentence in a solo, throwing in a pinch sorta draws attention to that one spot in a series of notes. Well played!! You just...

I used wound strings for these pinch squeals for the simple fact that pinches can be a bit tougher to grab on wound strings vs unwound. At least, many players find this to be the case. I have found that once I had the technique down, it really didn't matter which string. Zakk wylde often uses wound string pinches with heavy vibrato. It's his party piece and he uses it non stop. Missing pinch is often obvious to the listener so it's best to hit one when you go for one. The good news is you never missed any! Nice.
