All right here we're gonna talk a little
bit more about double stops, and
then I'm gonna give you some examples to
sort of get you familiar with some
of the common patterns that we're gonna
use in this D tuning.
So let's go ahead and
take a look at the music we have for this
And I'm just gonna play through these, and
you can either play along or just listen.
You'll have the music available for you to
So let's just look at this.
This is all mostly in the key of D.
I've got a few in other keys but
this is gonna be mostly D so
That's the first two measures of this.
These are just examples.
That's a pretty common blues scale with
Then continuing on.
So that's a pretty nice sort of a blues
riff using these double stops.
Once again the first line.
And it's not too challenging, the main
thing is just plucking the right,
correct strings, and I'm mostly, when I'm
doing these double stops,
I'm mostly using these two fingers.
So, once again the first line.
And then in the second line we go up to
the 12th fret.
Here which is also D.
Up to the 15th fret.
And that can be a little bit of a
Once you start getting high up on the
to play in tune you wanna make sure your
bar stays right in line with the fret.
You may wanna move over a little bit to
make sure you can see the bar in line with
the fret, cuz your hand ends up covering
the frets at this point.
That's the second line.
You can kind of slide into that 15.
And then you shift down to second and
And back to first and second.
And then for the third line you get.
Pretty standard blues lick there.
Couple single notes.
And then, basically I do the same thing in
G here on the fifth fret.
That's a real common pattern.
that's going up to the A chord here.
That's on the lowest string, and to get
those double stops,
even on the lowest two strings I'm using
these two fingers.
So that's all in the key of D.
I've got a couple here that are in E.
So if you were to bar the second fret
Make sure you're using enough pressure so
there's not a lot of buzzing.
And this is A excuse me, E.
So that's a nice little exercise in E
where your barring this second fret.
So you just gotta make sure you lift the
bar, a couple single string notes.
And once again, we've got one more
exercise in E.
And then one way up here.
seven, five, two.
