  • Hey Folks,

    wellcome to my Natural Harmonics lesson !

    Natural harmonics produce a chiming sound that lots of players use in their
    music.They are produced by placing your fingers lightly directly over the frets.

    This video lesson shows you how to locate the most common (and easiest to play)
    natural harmonics and shows you how to play them correctly.

    The easiest place to practice natural harmonics is the 12th fret, but you can
    produce a natural harmonic at nearly every fret. It is easier to hear them when
    your guitar is plugged into an amp and even easier when using the overdrive channel.

    Harmonics are played every time you pluck a note. Most of the time, however,
    you do not hear them. What you hear is the fundamental (sometimes called the first harmonic). The fundamental is the loudest sound produced, but it is accompanied by several harmonics. "Playing harmonics" on guitar is actually playing "artificial harmonics."
    Basically, it is a way of eliminating the fundamental and the other overtones !

    Here we go guys !
    Inspiration for this lesson I received while rain started to fall-
    as the ideal opportunity for playing this style :) How to play rain ?!
