I was learning how to play an Avril Lavigne song (My Happing Ending) when in the tab before the chorus it said "Harmonics at Fret 7"

What does that mean?
Haven't head the song... but to get harmonics, you lightly touch your left finger on the string and pluck the string with your right hand. Should be like a ringing sound...

"Harmonics at Fret 7" probably means to do it at fret 7.. not sure which string they're after though. Smile

You can create harmonics at other frets too - e.g. 5, 7, 12... just play around....
oh cool

thanks ST Big Grin
Practice your harmonics at fret 12 first. You'll have to touch the string right ON TOP of the fret to get the sound.

You'll have to pluck a little harder and touch a little lighter on the 5th and 7th frets, but you'll get the hang of it. Smile
thanks for the tips de_axeman

oh btw I passed my guitar to Jules to pass to you sometime to fix that problem for me.
Thanks in advance Big Grin
No worries - I'll let you know how I go.. Wink
