Pinch Harmonics

Here's a clip of a track I improvised last night. It has a few examples of "pinch harmonics" on the lead guitar. To create pinch harmonics, (also known as "pick harmonics" or "squeal"), you allow the thumb of the pick hand to make contact with the string as you pick. Picking in different locations on the string generates different "harmonics" all from the same fretted note.
