Alright, so I found out that if bend the high B string beyond the edge of the fret and press it against the site of the fret, it will ring the note 1½ step higher. I recorded a little clip that demonstrates how it can be used in a musical context.
You learn something new every day.
i figured that out years ago, but my teacher always yelled at me for doing it
id use it, but i can never get it to be consistent
