Watch the Double Stops & Single Notes online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Double Stop Chops

I often play double stop lines but split the double stop into its single note elements to add a new flavor to my sound. It's as simple as keeping the shapes together, but moving them around in order to create really nice melodic phrases. Plus, it's also just using the combination of single note lines and double stop lines. It's a great way to add variety and dynamic, harmonic interest into your solos.

I use my fingers for the double stops and a pick for the single note lines, so we'll talk about how to seamlessly go between fingers and pick, too. I typically tuck the pick under my little finger so that I can finger pick chords or the double stops. You may find another approach that works for you too. Let's check it out!
