Hey guys, think I need some input. I'm trying to learn the song Tattooed Dancer (Ozzy) by ear. I wanna learn it because the opening riff is one of the coolest i've ever heard. I have figured out the notes and chords and I can understand how Zakk plays the riff, but I can get the correct sound of my guitar. To me it sounds like Zakk basicly "squals" out harmonics from the first powerchord (or perfect 4th I guess) and then bends quickly and pulls off to the "chords" following that first harmonic hit so it affects the whole run. I hope i've explained my thoughts correctly. I could be mistaken but I think he plays it like that. I'm talking about the very first riff here.

So how would I go about getting a similar effect? I'm trying to hit both strings when I strum the ackord the same way I would when I do pinch harmonics which i'm pretty comfortable with. But I get a very different kind of sound, no matter how I strum the strings.

Any ideas??
