I've been trying for a while, but I can't get my guitar to "squeal" like Lyle's does in the Gm7 Gm6 funk lesson (the 2.2 fret harmonic on the G string). Even with very high gain and compression, I can't seem to get the note loud enough. Also, it seems like a lot of players can get those really high harmonics over any note whenever they want. What's their secret?   Thanks in advance for any advice.

That sound is called a pinched harmonic. Strike the string hard with your pick and get the side of your thumb to bump/pinch against the string at the same time to produce a harmonic. Watch this video of me playing the C minor pentatonic, look at my right hand thumb as it plays each note. >VIDEO CLIP
