Watch the Double Stops & Barring online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Fretboard Fitness

I think that you will find these exercises very useful. Here you will learn some major pentatonic patterns that will help to strengthen your hand and introduce you to the concept of barring/double stops, the technique of holding down ( or "fretting") 2 or 3 (or 4) strings with one finger. If you have never played this way and have difficulty at first don't get discouraged, just practice at your own pace and be assured that eventually it will become second nature.
