These are actually real harmonics and not artificial. By putting down the first finger solid you create a new base note, shorter string, and therefor can change the open strings 3rd finger harmonic by using your 4th finger lightly with the solid first.
oh ok, i see. Thanks, that really clears things up for me so the first finger is acting as the nut to create different lengths of the string so the 4th finger can create a harmonic that is two octaves higher than the placement note of the 1st finger.
Whaaaattt??? OK. Since I didn't really advance very far in my Suzuki studies (up to book 6 only) when I was younger, I was never shown these 'fingered harmonics'. I'll have to work on those. Is that the technique used for the harmonics in 'Czardas'? I just sampled that piece last night for the very first time and I was clueless as to how to play them. OY! HAHAHA! Glad I found this video. You have so much information here.

I am also having a really hard time with the harmonics in Csardas, I've never really used them much before and now it's killing me
I'm embarrassed that this little girl can do them perfectly on her 1/4 violin and I've been playing almost three times longer than she's been living. Maybe I'll play some Lindsey Stirling music to have fun and feel better about myself.
