  • Hi all :) Pinch Harmonics is one of my favourite little techniques to do on the guitar, and by adding just a few pinches here and there, you can really spice up any old boring riff or solo.

    With this lesson, i wont go into the very basics of pinch harmonics. This lesson is more about how you can easily use (or over-use as i have done in this vid:) pinch harmonics in your melodies or riffs.

    If you have just mastered pinch harmonics, hopefully you will pick up an idea or two on how to further use them. Like bending, vibrating or sliding the pinches.

    BPM: 150 (With a half-time feel)
    Tuning: E standard

    I have included 4 backingtracks and a guitarpro file.

    Hopefully this will inspire more pinch usage for some of you :)
    Enjoy! :)
