Slip ‘n Slide (Double Stops in a 12 Bar Blues)

This lesson shows how to use double-stops in a 12 bar blues. When you think of Chuck Berry or Keith Richard’s style of playing, you‘ll often think of licks being played two notes at a time. These pairs of notes, often referred to as “double stops,” are also a strong part of George Benson’s and the late Chet Atkin’s way of adding variety to their solos. This lesson shows how to take a 12 bar blues progression and use double stops to lay out the chords, as well as the melody. The fact that most of these pairings slide into each other, gives the tune it’s name.

Standard notation and tab.
