When do you use double stops in a tune?
A student named Julien Blanc asked me during a recent office hours session, “When do you use double stops in a tune?”
- How much does a double stop add to the song? Does playing a single string sound better?
- Discover what sounds good to you
- Try single notes and drone notes
- Try a combination
- Use drone notes as accents
- Whiskey example
- Experiment with double stops on different parts of a tune.
