YL39 – 6 ways to play Double-stops

In this lesson, I’m going to show you 6 different techniques for playing double-stops.

A double-stop simply means playing 2 notes at the same time. We often hear them in solos and fills, in country, rock and blues. It’s almost like a simple chord, but we’re using 2 notes instead of 3.

Double stops are awesome! We can also use them as mini-chords for playing rich, melodic ideas up and down the neck. In fact, using double stops is a great way to play harmony with yourself.

You can play double stops on adjacent strings, or on non-adjacent strings, which means skipping strings.
