Tricks and Techniques, Double Stops.
This next lesson is about Double Stops.
And double stops means, more or
less, you're using an interval.
[MUSIC]
It can be any interval.
It can be a third.
[MUSIC]
And you play a melody or a riff.
This can be a fourth and
it can be a fifth, it can be a sixth.
[MUSIC]
So
I'm gonna teach you a few double stops
that I personally like to use in my style.
Thirds are always nice,
you can harmonize this major scale in D.
You got the notes all ready.
D, E, F sharp, G,
A, B, C sharp and E.
So you can harmonize it then.
[MUSIC]
Like this.
[MUSIC]
All the way down.
So this is like D and B.
[MUSIC]
C sharp and A.
[MUSIC]
B.
[MUSIC]
And G.
[MUSIC]
A and F sharp.
G and E.
[MUSIC]
F sharp and D.
[MUSIC]
E and C sharp, B and D,
and C sharp and A, and the B and G, A,
an F sharp and G and E and F sharp and B.
So if you play it in thirds,
going up the scale, it sounds like this.
[MUSIC]
And my turn back here.
[MUSIC]
Like that to cover the whole guitar neck.
Once again another good thing
George Benson came up with,
he took a third interval and
he added an octave from this note,
from the A down to A, so.
[MUSIC]
So he's playing that with either,
it depends on what you like.
If you wanna play it with thumb,
first finger, seconding finger.
[MUSIC]
I like to use my second and third finger.
[MUSIC]
This, but
you could also do this if
you think this is easier.
[MUSIC]
Same idea,
harmonizing the scale,
but adding an octave.
[MUSIC]
Pretty nice?
There are also some bluesy double
stuffs I really like, like this one.
[MUSIC]
We're still in the key of D, so D octave.
[MUSIC]
And the fifth.
[MUSIC]
G.
[MUSIC]
You hammer-on or you slide.
[MUSIC]
An A flat,
like up to F on the same string.
Still picking this note,
D on the top string.
[MUSIC]
Sometimes you can go down to this,
note to the low D.
[MUSIC]
And
if you wanna play the major third,
F sharp.
[MUSIC]
Just slide up to that one too.
[MUSIC]
It's a nice one, I like this one too.
[MUSIC]
Another Benson inspired phrase.
[MUSIC]
Hammer-on.
[MUSIC]
D, A hammer-on to B.
[MUSIC]
Second string 12th fret, and
then you can do this.
[MUSIC]
It's an F, it's a minor third,
and we have the B on top and
the as I come to D.
[MUSIC]
This is another nice one.
[MUSIC]
You can move this these small segments.
[MUSIC]
Chromatically if you like.
[MUSIC]
Sometimes it's nice to use fourth
note intervals as well, like.
[MUSIC]
To do these kind of double stops.
[MUSIC]
Sliding from twelfth fret to tenth fret.
[MUSIC]
From seventh fret to fifth fret
[MUSIC]
Even down here you can do like this.
[MUSIC]
All right, here is a backing track for
the double stuff, same progression,
D major 7, A7 sus.
[MUSIC]
Tricks and Techniques,
Double Stops- Bonus Footage.
Hey, it's Andreas.
Here's just a little bonus footage for
you coming up here.
In the forums, in one of the threads,
I had a request about a specific run,
a really fast lick I'm playing.
You can look at it in
the general tricks and
techniques section,
lessons called Double Stops.
I teach this, these.
[MUSIC]
Bluesy.
[MUSIC]
Double stops in
the style of George Benson.
And I had a backing track with D Major 7,
A7 sus.
Kind of a funky style,
similar to his song, Breezin.
And at the end of this lesson, I think I
just did an improvised fast run, that,
that you guys requested
that you wanted to learn.
So I'm gonna break it down for
you here, really slowly.
I did the lick kind of rebato when
the backing track was fading out.
So, this is what it sounds like.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Little bit faster.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Like that.
One more time.
[MUSIC]
Like that.
So, slowly, it's, C Sharp.
In the ten, ninth position here.
C sharp, E, D sharp or E flat,
back to C sharp, and D.
And then F sharp,
A on the next string.
[MUSIC]
We have the C sharp again on the,
the D string, we have B on D string.
[MUSIC]
Go back to A, A flat,
D, F sharp G.
So this is like a chromatic
enclosure of the D.
[MUSIC]
Clo, clo, chromatic enclosure on the G.
Here's the G major 7 arpeggio.
[MUSIC]
G, B,
D, F sharp.
And then I do.
[MUSIC]
E, F sharp, G, A,
B, D, F sharp and
then I slide.
You can do it if you stretch.
[MUSIC]
Or if you slide.
[MUSIC]
If you slide like this.
[MUSIC]
If you like.
And then I go to, this,
this is a E minor 9 arpeggio going back.
[MUSIC]
F sharp.
[MUSIC]
D D.
B, G, F sharp.
[MUSIC]
D.
[MUSIC]
B, G, F sharp, E.
[MUSIC]
A, F sharp, G.
[MUSIC]
B. [MUSIC]
F sharp, B.
[MUSIC]
E, A, B.
[MUSIC]
G.
[MUSIC]
And I play a little like this.
You can do.
[MUSIC]
If you, and, and C sharp again.
If you want to stay at the, in, in this
position, doing the fourth intervals.
[MUSIC]
Like that.
So, good luck with this lick.
[MUSIC]
