Watch the Open String Triple Stops: 1 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from SoloCraft

It wouldn't be fair to say that I saved the best for last but this one is a doozy and it is an essential flavor you need to know. Open string triple stops are a mixture of classic sixths and thirds with an open string not unlike a pedal tone that continues to drone as you move your shapes around to color the chords. Sound good so far? They are good and you will be digging how simple they are to play too. Now, would you agree that I have given you some amazing spices in this course that weren't that hard to master? Well, that was my goal and I hope you are gliding on cloud 11 right now with all the new crafts wafting around your solos!


The definition of a triple stop is three notes played at the same time. An open string triple stop is a double stop idea like a classic sixth with an open string added in between the notes like a pedal tone. Please take a look at the diagrams provided for you and you will see what I mean instantly.
