once the mechanics of natural harmonics have been understood

as with swybrid picking

and exploring alternate tunings:

i can explore both of these things at once

CDADGA 8 string tuning:

P |-<V>----------------<V>---------------<V>------------------<V>--|

E |-<7>-------------------------------------------------------<7>--|
A |----<7>-------------<7>---------------------------------<7>-----|
G |-------<7>-------<7>---<7>------------<7>------------<7>--------|
D |-----------<7><7>---------<7>------<7>---<7>------<7>-----------|
A |-----------------------------<7><7>---------<7><7>--------------|
D |----------------------------------------------------------------|
C |----------------------------------------------------------------|

<V> indicates when to finger pluck the note with your right hand, instead of it being part of the sweep motion.

acts as a pivoting point.

which is what achieves the harp sound.

absolutely love the contour that is produced here.
