I have a slight problem…I can’t seem to get any good harmonics outside of the seventh to twelfth fret range. Does anybody know why?

Fresh (zingy) strings help… so, if you have old, dull strings, it will be hard(er).

Also, try to pluck closer to the bridge (where the strings are more taut), and remember that you might have to pluck a bit harder than you usually do to get the harmonics. Also, shift the position where you pluck slightly back and forth - you might accidentally mute the harmonics.

Finally, the harmonics in the lower part of the fretboard (1st to 5th fret) do NOT always coincide with the position of the frets, so you need to do some trial and error to find the right spots for the harmonics.
