not really a trick, but you could always try the ol' cigarette in the headstock a la eddie van halen.

or using a violin bow, page style

And this guy pretty much has a handle on where the notes are on the fretboard.
(or it's all a trick)

woah!! that guy who plays with his feet is amazing, we have a fella in nottingham who's only got one arm and well, no disrepect but a stub for his strumming hand, he plays loads of different songs, he has a sort of strap on his arm with a pick on the end, it's fantastic to watch.

A knock back is the beginning of a comeback!!!

Light the fretboard on fire with some lighter fluid, then play really fast and you won't burn your hand.

EDIT: (It goes without saying that this is a joke. Don't try it at home (or anywhere else!))

+1 on dude playing with his feet. Downright amazing.

But if you do try Daniel Lioneye's tip, make sure you have a friend with a video camera ready so they can post it to youtube for our benefit while you're down at the A&E.

try playing from over the top of the neck. In other words your hand is coming down from over not under.

oh yeah, then theres doing trills with your fretting hand while running the side of your picking hand across the string (just touching it not pushing down) to create some crazy harmonics...but this you need to be playing with very high gain and quite loud and with some good treble in the mix. Maybe push down on your wah pedal.

You could use a Tesla coil as your guitar amp.

I think you'd need to play with it a bit to get a nice sound though.
I think it should go without saying that you should know what you're doing with a Tesla coil before you do this. You wouldn't want to kill your TV/Computer/Regular amp/Grandpa's Pacemaker (Really!) with it. These things make a lot of high frequency radio interference that can destroy nearby electronics.

I think Nicoli Tesla would have approved.

Feedback might be a bit hazardous, though.
