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
    • single/double
    • Whiskey example
  • Experiment with double stops on different parts of a tune.
