This Wierd Technique.

I can't really see from the side, but I THINK it is that technique where you use the side of your plam to create the harmonics on the fretboard.

BUT, just in case I am wrong...

What technique might this be(guthrie makes it look so easy...):

It's at 2:40

I don't hear any harmonics at 2:40. If you're talking about that strange tone about 5-7 seconds after my wager is that's an effect. He does indicate that he's switching on an effect.

looks to me like he picked up a slide and then moved it up and down at about the 30th-36th fret while doing legato below it to make sound.

i looked at it again and it's definitely not an effect. he's using some object in his picking hand to make the sound but I'm not sure what.

It looks and sounds like a slide to me. Appears to be a standard chrome plated slide from what I can tell...

EDIT: Definitely a slide, you can see him pick it up and put it back on top of the amp when he's done.

Interesting use for a slide, huh? Guthrie has quite an imagination, and he's an excellent guitar player. I think that I'm going to have to pick up some of his music...

AHA!! Thank You all.  Been a big help.

I've been trying to use a technique exactly like that but I guess I need to buy a slide. :(

Hey Aurian - He's definitely using a slide.  One cool thing that I've played around with is using a slide in my right (strumming / picking) hand and "bouncing" it on the strings while chording with my left hand to create a hammered dulcimer effect.  It works better on an acoustic, but it's cool on an electric too.  Just be careful not to ding the finish on your Parker!
