Re: King crimson stuff

IMO he did a kind of 'ultimate' version of this particular 'songbird' 
of his in the solo to 'Happy with What you Have to be Happy With', on the 
mini-CD of the same title as well as on The Power to Believe. Almost as a 
self-parody it would seem, but no less impressive.

I've never much tried to deconstruct this style of playing (as it is so 
personal to him and sounds nigh-impossible and completely pointless to try 
and reproduce:-). But to my ears it sounds a bit as though it's a 
of the harmonic technique where you only apply the harmonic after the pick 
action, mid-note, so to speak...?
