"Yeah, this is correct (assuming treble clef, obviously). And it's indeed easier to pull off up there, I just checked on my violin. Theoritically, you can use any node that matches the partial, so, since this is the 7th, every 1/7th of the…"

"Thanks for all the answers everyone, and sorry if I'm being unclear in what I'm looking for hehe! But basically I'm looking for that chart to answer if this natural harmonic sounds as the pitch indicated in the parenthesis? Since I…"

"If you want the sort-of-F on G string, it's the 7th, so two octaves plus a slightly flattened minor seventh above the fundamental (it's not exactly quarter tone flat, more like a 1/6th). As for where to look for all of them, you can…"

"Sounds right to me Dane, thanks!. As a guitar player I find even natural harmonics of simple ratios to be challenging sometimes, so how useful are these more exotic ones?"

"It's possible to map the natural harmonics of each string along with the notes that, compared with the Equal Temperament scale, are  flattened and sharpened. As far as I recall they aren't exactly 1/4 tones anyway. The frequencies of…"

"Thanks for the link! Though I can't seem to find the natural harmonic which I provided in the picture on these charts. Or maybe I'm reading them wrong hehe"

"I don't understand either, but there is this.  Sibelius notation software says that the symbol in your attachment above is "1-1/2 half steps flat." I'm no expert but the only way I know of to flat a string harmonic is to…"

HiI'm new to this site so I hope this is the right part of the forum to post a question like this!Anyways I'm wondering if anyone has knowledge of where to find/can share a microtonal harmonic chart. I'm looking for something that shows ALL the nodes on a string and what notes/octaves that sound.I have really been looking hard and the charts I have found don't include certain quarter tone notes like the one in the picture below, which sounds as a quarter flat F if I'm correct (unsure about the…See More
