Joe Satriani's "Hordes of Locusts" is a cool example of this.


Johhny d

EVH 1979. Very cool sound.


The Shred King ...

George Lynch coined the term "rolling harmonic" in his early 90s REH video. He mentioned that it's an old LA trick.

Separately, you can't just randomly apply the trill and rolling harmonic in your playing without considering the appropriate key otherwise it will sound horrible.

Alex Skolnick has used this technique to a successful degree in Testament, often times even kicking off a solo with this cool trick.
