Hints: The right hand fingering to play artificial harmonics is very tricky, so make sure to fully understand the movement of the fingers before attempting these exercises. Watch out that the ring finger in the right hand does not accidentally pluck another string. Pluck with decent force or else the sound of the harmonics will be low. If the coordination between both hands is off you will either hear a muted sound or you will just have a regular non-harmonic note.
