Watch the Harmonics online guitar lesson by Denny Sarokin from Songwriter's Guide to Great Guitar

Also called chimes, these bell like tones come from gently TOUCHING, NOT FRETTING a string at the 12th, 7th, or 5th frets and releasing the finger off the string at the exact moment of picking - landing on and leaving the string like a butterfly.

You can also trace the chord spelling up the neck - Lenny Breau, Chet, and Doyle Dykes are masters of this technique.
