Watch the Crazy Stallions: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 3

An unusual way to add a distinct sound to a solo is to play a series of natural harmonics as a means of creating a melody. I begin this solo with a series of natural harmonics that outline an E minor pentatonic scale, which sounds unusual over Bm, the chord under it. These harmonics are produced by lightly laying the underside of the fretting finger directly above the fretwire on a given string. In this example, I move alternately between the seventh and 12th frets, after which I revert to lines based on G major pentatonic, Bm pentatonic and A minor pentatonic.
