    Artificial Harmonics are when you have one of your fingers on your left hand fretting a note, then putting your picking hand at the note that's an octave(12 frets) higher than that, then holding the pick with your thumb and middle finger with your index lightly touching the string, then picking it. Yeah. Basically what you just said, you just didn't mention that your picking hand had to be an octave higher than the note you were playing.

    What I do for upstroking a pinch harmonic is hold the pick with my thumb and index finger, then rest my middle finger on the nail of my index finger, then pick it and my middle finger will lightly touch the string.

    I learned doing the AH's with my nail somehow (without a pick) and i'm able to do them up and downstrokes if i use a pick.

    Alt piching aint as cool as it sounds though :p

    I figured it out, sorta, trying to learn Stillborn by BLS. I curl my index finger on the backside of the pick and hit the string around where the first knuckle is. I can do it pretty easily on the wound strings, but on the plain ones, I can't get it to work right. I'll take a pic of my fingers how I hold the pick.
    (excuse my n00bish picture skills)

    ok i think i almost got it down, i go from under the string and go up kind of and it makes it much higher pitched.
