Sounds like the one...

Try something like hammering onto 5th on A, pulling off to open A and then do the same on 7th, then back to 5th etc etc...
While your doing it, lighty run the side of you hand (or your thumb) up and down the string over the pickup area... you should get a whole bunch of harmonics as long as you don't press too hard and mute the strings :)

That's probably a bad explanation... but I'll record a video of it if it's too hard to understnad from writing.
