Stevie Ray Double Stoppin'

Demonstrating use of the G minor blues scale, we are going to learn a useful lick in the style of Stevie Ray Vaughn. We will be integrating double stops as well as the "blue" note, or flat 5, into our example. Once we break it down, we will try it slowly and if you need help hearing it, use the AB looping tool below the video player. Once you have it down, we will try it with a full backing track up to speed. I will play four bars with the lick, than you will play four bars. Remember to try and solo and play rhythm guitar throughout the form as well. Let's check it out.

Questions & Answers

Hello Anders, I would like to learn what you are playing to "keep time" when we trade off during blues soloing? I find myself playing 1-4-5 chords but that does not sound like the cool stuff you got going on. Is there a lesson that covers this topic? Thank you, David 4 months ago
