Double stops are just 2 notes played simultaneously, perhaps made most famous by Mr Berry - you know the immortal intro... Double stops are a neat way of getting around the fretboard and can enliven fills and solos.
This weeks lick uses double stops that appear in and around an 'E' shape C major chord - see diagram below. The lick starts from the 'top' of the chord and descends also just like Mr Berry's J B Goode, each double stop is slid into from a semitone below - you could experiment with different rhythm patterns here to add interest or suggest another style, rockabilly anyone? The third double in may seem an odd shape - 'backwards', but it makes for a tritone,which is very country!
Please try this one and put it to use in your own improvising, have fun!
