    THE PROFESSOR As you can see in this expertly demonstrated lesson by Sinisa, there is a lot you can do with just two scales/modes when it comes to building cool-sounding lines, textures, riffs and in this case, tapping harmonic ideas. 

    Learning the relationship between the relative major scale and the relative minor scale, how to build these modes and apply them to your playing will greatly increase your ability to solo over your favorite chord progressions, as well as dig into cool-sounding harmonics like the ones you learned in this tapping lesson.

    Hey folks!

    Welcome to my new lesson on Harmonics and how to play them. On this occasion I chose the variant known as Tapped Harmonics. Some would say that there is no difference between natural and artificial harmonics. Let's say that they are partly right.

    How? Well, because Natural harmonics have been transferred from their original form into a different key and renamed to Tapped harmonics! Simply as that. Take the logic - 12th fret of each string is a natural harmonic, right? Now, press 5th fret on the high E string (A tone) with a left hand finger, and tap 17 fret on a same string with a right hand finger (A octave). Natural harmonic? Tapped harmonic or Tapped Natural harmonic! I'll leave it up to you to solve the mystery :)
