Double Stops

Double Stops

Playing "double stops," means playing on two strings at once. You can find Double Stops in Blues and Rock´n Roll, from the Stones to Heavy Metal are the possibilities for this simple technique. But there are triple stops (three strings) and quadruple stops (four strings) as well.

For a Double Stop you hold two strings with one finger or you use ring finger and pinky.

Recommended songs: Chuck Berry used Double Stops in nearly every song! See "Johnny Be Goode", "Roll over Beethoven" and many others!
