Hello. I've searched the web far and near, and can't find a single thing that states what double stops are, and exactly how to execute them. Please help.

Thank you,

Robert

double stops are two notes played at the same time, they kinda give you a little taste of a whole chord while playing used a lot in blues and country(really all types of music), check out the original tricks they have some double stop tricks in there.

A great song for double stops is 5150 by Van Halen. It's kinda tough, but a really great tune.

I will try to help you, A double stop is when you hit 2 strings at the same time, ok thats the double part of it, ok then you stop,for a split second, thats the stop part of it, thats why its called double stops, thats the simplest way i know how to put it.

It really helps if you use a hybrid picking style -- especially when you start playing with a lot of string skipping like say a note on the 1st string and one on the 3rd or 4th. Many of the country licks that incorporate double stops are simply unplayable without hybrid picking.
