Guide To Harmonics 4
Natural Harmonics: D + F#
The D harmonic is derived from dividing the open bottom E string into 7 parts
- it is just a coincidence that D is a seventh of E .
It occurs halfway between frets 2 and 3 but a little bit more towards fret 3.
Its use is limited by the fact that its pitch is noticeably flat compared to the D harmonic found at fret 5 on the 4th ( D ) string.
This D harmonic also appears just below fret 6 , just below fret 10 and halfway between frets 14 and 15.
The F# harmonic is found right over the 2nd fret and derives from dividing the string into 9 parts [ it also has to be a coincidence that F# is a ninth of E ! ]
This harmonic can also be found at fret 14.
