    THE PROFESSOR Having the Major Scale under your fingers, as well as knowing how to mix in the Major Blues Scale, will give you the melodic material needed to nail these double-stop, bluesy licks. 

    Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    I use a lot the double stops technique in my solos. I think that comes from my blues, folk, soul and pop influences. For this occasion, I have composed a country ballad to show you how you can use this technique. Double stops, double bending, single and double note slide, tap harmonics, hybrid picking... are some of the techniques used in this lesson.

    Music Style:
    Country ballad

    Tonality & Chords:
    C major


    - Double stops
    - Double bending,
    - Double note slides,

    I used a Fender Stratocaster Master Built 60 Relic with a little bit of delay and overdrive.

    Standard tuning: E,A,D,G,B,E

    60 bpm. (Slow parts at 30 bpm)
