So, more double stops.
We're gonna look at sixth interval double
stops, which are, really nice through,
relatively easy to play, on the fiddle,
and they're very rich.
They have a lot of harmonic juiciness.
And, very useful for backup, and just
general double step madness.
So a sixth interval, If you count up for
[SOUND] one, two, three, four, five, six.
It could be like that or it could be.
[SOUND] Either, both of those are sixths,
one is a minor sixth,
when the fingers are tight
and a major sixth when the fingers
We have those two different sounds
So, the nice thing about these double
stops is that they're rich,
And, you can, play like scales and moving
without killing yourself it's very kind
of a natural finger position to play so if
we were wanting to play-
Something like that,
it would be really easy to do that.
If we're backing up, say a tune that,
with, like a sequence like Bill Cheatum or
something like that, or Blackberry Blossom
one of those kind of tunes,
especially, like, if we took Blackberry
Bus in which it starts.
We could actually just back that up
like that where we're just walking down
through the scale, same with Bill Cheatum.
So, this, it's really fun to just sort of
make up these little scales.
If we started with, for instance, the key
of G, G major.
We're to start with-
right, this, that b and a g and
then go to the next one which would be a c
and a d.
And then to the next set of strings.
So I'm gonna do this in,
let's pick the key of D.
And I'll play two notes, and you play the
And then I'll, I'll wait for a second and
then I'll play the next set of notes.
So if I play, an A and a F sharp.
Nice D chord, D type of chord.
Right and then we could go down or we
could keep going up.
And you start to see patterns in this.
So if we're playing like major type
scales, you'll see okay.
So there's loose, loose, tight, tight.
Loose, loose, tight, loose.
So, these patterns kind of remain the same
through major scales, it's like there's a
couple of loose ones and then a tight one.
And maybe there's two tight ones, and
there's a loose one.
You can figure out your patterns on those.
And just kind of run through these
We can also start trying things like-
Very popular blues lick,
blues guitar lick that we could play very
easily on the fiddle.
We could play that in G if we went all the
way up here.
What are we doing?
We're starting with a, the loose position
on the D and the B-
then dragging both of those notes down
just a half step-
and then replacing our fingers,
going down one more half step-
and then ending up on our goal,
G [SOUND] in the tight position.
So, all kinds of fun things you could do
with these six as far as just making
little melodies, chord melodies, moving
around and scales.
So try that, try doing some scales up and
some of these keys, G and D are the
once you start getting into other keys
it's gonna be interesting literary.
I'm sure that you'll have a lot of fun
