I hear this sound occasionally, but I've never seen anyone actually doing it. Is it just sliding the left hand down a string while doing pinch harmonics with the left hand?


(interesting site, btw. Good idea, poor execution and follow-through. Kind of a structured guitarist analysis thing)

Sounds to me like it is pinch harmonics on an open string, moving the right hand backwards and forwards on the string to "pinch" in different places - didn't know it was called that though!

It's actually regular picking in right hand - and moving left hand forward and backward to play like natural harmonic!
