Watch the Double Stop Lick For E Shape online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Country
Our first double stop lick is inspired by Jerry Reed. It fits perfectly over an E chord shape. We are pedaling off of the root on this lick. This also implies the IV/I sound or the "Amen" sound. This is what happens when we impose the IV chord over the I chord. In this key we are playing over a G chord. On beat three we imply a C chord. This little chord is super common. Heck, The Rolling Stones made a whole career out of using it. Use your middle and ring finger for all of the double stops and the pick for single notes. Make sure you are plucking the strings hard enough with the fingers to get a good spank out of the strings.
