TAB Artificial Harmonic

Fig.1.  The “Artificial Harmonic” shown in TAB.
In this example, fret the G String “at the 7th fret.
Choke up on the pick.  That is to say hold more of it between your Thumb and Index finger than usual.
Use a short picking stroke and let the edge of your thumb gently brush against
the vibrating string as you quickly pull it away
(This light touching of the string after the note is picked is what creates the harmonic).
