In this Quick Lick we are going to do pinch/squeal harmonics during a descending scale shape. It's important to be able to grab the pinch on the run and this will help you do it!! Players like ZAKK WYLDE are masters of the Pinch. He can grab a pinch harmonic at any time at any place on the neck. It's very important to be able to hit a pinch without having to stop, change hand positions, make the pinch, and then start moving again. This drill will help you be able to hit them on the fly!!!

Bingo!! This one requires that you do pinch harmonics on each and every string. You may have noticed they are often harder to get on the wound strings compared to the unwound strings. Your timing is good here, form is good as well, it's all there! Also, I liked the improv at the end! Very nice touch for a good take on #69. This means of course that you just...
LEVELED UP!!!!!

BINGO! That's it smile.gif Nicely done. Some folks have a lot of trouble with this one. Playing pinch harmonics on various strings can be tricky work indeed. Some folks never quite get to grips with it. I'm glad to say it looks like you have come to grips with it just fine smile.gif The wound strings are more tricky to get a pinch on but that doesn't seem to slow you down smile.gif
You just
LEVELED UP!

Thanks Todd,

I struggled for a very long time many moons ago, then suddenly I got to a point where I struggled to stop them happening laugh.gif then it evolved into being able to do them at will on the G string, then I took many years out due to lack of progress which was due to lack of direction and noodling the same old thing so I've had to reinstate that skill somewhat.

Cheers buddy.

Yet again PERFECT! This is exactly what I'm looking for. Muted for the notes in the scale bit, then full vibrato and unmuted for the pinch harmonic. It's the difference between the muted notes and the unmuted pinch squeal with vibrato that makes this work. It's very similar to what one might play in a solo. A few chunky notes and then a big squeal. This requires good vibrato to work properly. otherwise, the lick just doesn't sound very good. Tepid and shallow vibrato doesn't go well with pinch harmonics. Very good execution here. You just..

LEVELED UP!!!
