Watch the Delta Double Stops online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from 30 Beginner Slide Blues Guitar Licks You MUST Know
As the name of this figure implies, I utilize two-note figures (double stops) along with single note phrases to create a "Delta blues" type sound. In this example, I play another two-bar phrase repeatedly over the 12-bar progression (resulting in the two-bar lick being played six times). I begin with the slide across the top two strings at the 12th fret, after which I slide down to the 10th fret on the first string, followed by a slide back up to the 12th fret on the second string, and then the phrase ends with a vibrato applied to the A root note sounded 12th fret of the third string. Like open E, one can "hang around" between the 12th and 10th frets while in an open A tuning and find all kinds of great licks.
