I am transferring from classical guitar to electric. I am familiar with everything except the huge variety of effects that are available for electric.
I often hear guitarists performing an instant octave or more jump in the middle of a solo as exemplified in the following video. In this case, just the final note of the run is played this way.
I know all about harmonics etc. and I suspect that this might have something to do with it. However I can't catch what she is doing.
Do people do this by using harmonics? If so, what precisely do they do with right and left hands to achieve it? Can any note be "octavised" this way or is it only possible on certain frets where the harmonics hang out naturally?
P.S. I don't yet have many effects pedals. I haven't anything beyond a clean sound so far so I can't easily recognise how things are achieved just from the sound. I suspect that part of this effect requires fuzz or overdrive or something (?)
