What is going on here???

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VeHNnUHVGw&feature=player_embedded

what is happening in the beginning of that song?

it sounds like harmonic chimes.. but how's he getting those different notes.. its like he's playing the chimes and walking the fret board at the same time..

it doesnt seem possible to me.. i dont get it..

anyone know how he does this??

and anyone have the whole song tabbed out already?

thanks

He's doing one hand harmonics. Hitting the harmonic 12 frets down from whatever he's fretting. So in fretting the 3rd fret, he's hitting the harmonic at the 15th fret.

anyone have a video link showing both hands doing this? i guess its just a one-handed chime? using the index finger to chime on every string while plucking every string with the thumb?

Here's Kalei Gamiao explaining exactly how to do it:

Yeah...that's one technique (well, one of many) that I was never really able to get down on guitar (where harmonics are relatively easy) let alone on ukulele. I just never could master getting just the right touch with my index finger while using thumb or second finger to pluck the string ahead of it. I have a friend who is amazing at it (on guitar).

that's an awesome technique.. actually i just thought when i heard alot of chimes that it was from the guy moving like crazy up and down the fret board at the harmonic intervals to get the different notes.. i never really payed attention to it on videos..

definitely something WAY worth getting down.. thats my new thing then..

thanks
