How do you play an artificial harmonic on guitar?

It can take a good while to perfect. You put your finger lightly on the 12th fret. Then you pick the string and pull your finger away at the same time. Good luck! Ya, that's it. Hold your finger on the string until you feel the pluck, and release. You'll feel it more and more. Try different release times until you get it. Also, the harder you pluck, the longer you can leave your finger on the string. But, it still must let go before you dampen the note.
