    hours! not at all what i had in mind. a few twangs and i could incorporate it pretty much immediately in my plucking was more my idea. for if it is challenging, chances are i will not be interested. it must all come for free and effortlessly or fk it im gonzo.

    Tilt your thumb a bit, that's all.

    There are 2 types of harmonics.

    Pinch harmonics are explained in that video . You can also do what i think is called natural harmonics. No clear thumb sorcery needed. If you place your index finger lightly on one of the top 3 strings on the 3rd fret.(not applying pressure just lightly touching it) and stum that string it will make that harmonic sound your after it also works on alot of different frets but i cant remember any of the others as its years since i played my guitar.

    I think the fifth is always the same as the third on the next string.. Usually tune up that way.

    And on that fret which has the two things on it? That marks the octave or somethin? If the harmonics thing sounds the same as the string played on that fret, you have guitar intonation like a boss.
