Mahalo Guitar Solo Course: Double Stop

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 Double stops is a term that describes a very basic concept: playing two notes at the same time. Double stops can be played anywhere on the fretboard at any interval. For instance, you can play a double stop at the 5th frets of the 1st and 2nd strings or at the 3rd and 6th frets of the 5th and 2nd strings. As long as you're playing only two notes simultaneously, you're playing a double stop. How to Play Double Stops (1st Method): With your pick between your thumb and index finger, play the lower interval with your pick, and simultaneously play the higher interval with your middle finger on your picking hand.? For example, if you're playing a double stop on the 5th frets of the 1st and 2nd strings, pick the note on the 2nd string and pluck the note with your middle finger on the 1st string. How to Play Double Stops (2nd Method):?This method is accurate but doesn't yield the same amount volume from the strings as the first method.? With this method, simply use your thumb and index or middle finger on your picking hand to play both notes in the double stop. How to Play Double Stops (3rd Method):?This method is an easier concept to understand, but it has a tendency to be less accurate then the first and second methods.? With this method, you simply use your pick to play both notes in the double stop. This method will yield the most volume out of your double stops.
