Greg Brus replied to William Lindvall's discussion Microtonal harmonic chart for strings
"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 string.…"

"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 realized that the…"

Greg Brus replied to William Lindvall's discussion Microtonal harmonic chart for strings
"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 generally just…"

"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? Dane Aubrun said:
It's possible to map the natural harmonics of each string…"

Dane Aubrun replied to William Lindvall's discussion Microtonal harmonic chart for strings
"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 a Just scale…"

"Yeah sorry I forgot to mention that I'm looking for a chart over natural harmonics on a string, something like this: https://www.themoderndoublebass.org.uk/harmonics---charts.html
Though in this link doesn't include some harmonics, for example not…"

"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 either lower the fundamental…"

Dane Aubrun replied to William Lindvall's discussion Microtonal harmonic chart for strings
"Not quite sure what you're looking for, like "harmonic chart?" Are you looking for a list of accidentals? The scores I've looked at usually have a legend facing the first page of the score and I doubt there is a standard set. Those used by e.g.…"
