Watch the What are Double Stops? online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Double Stop Chops

Double stops are two notes of a different pitch played at the same time. Double stops are typically consonant in nature and used to embellish a wide variety of musical styles from country to Latin, blues to calypso.
In this course, I want to take a focused look at the typical double stop moves and ideas found in contemporary music. You'll be able to apply my approaches to any style of music...it'll just boil down to sound and phrasing approaches at that point. Double stops can form a complete solo, create memorable hooks, fills, combine with chord moves, and even guide you to a harmony lead guitar part if you separate the tones. They're a great way to outline the harmonic structure of a song and add a full rich harmonic sound to your lead guitar playing.
