How to do False Harmonics in Steps:

1. Place your index finger underneath the string as if you were going to do a pop.
2. Place your thumb an estimated 12 frets in front of your left hand position on the fretboard for an one octive false harmonic, 24 for a two octive false harmonic.
3. Pull up your index finger and thumb simultaneously and gently. If done correctly, you will have done a false harmonic.

I hope that's all. What a great song!
