they're really not as hard as they seem
when you pick the bend, make sure that your thumb is pretty close to the tip of the pick, and after you pick, the string should hit the tip of your thumb right left of the corner of your nail. you dont want your thumb to get hit but rather just tap it. you just need to practice and see how it works on your hands.
and you dont NEED light gauge strings i use Ernie Ball regualrs and i can do pinch harmonics fine.
