Let’s talk about double stops.

Double stops or dyads as they’re also known, are a great way to add body and attitude to a lick.⁠

Though double stops can be played all over the place in lots of different variations – for rock and blues guitar they’re most commonly heard based in the 1st position of the minor pentatonic.⁠

You can hear these sorts of double stops being played by Chuck Berry, Ace Frehley, Angus Young, Slash, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Zakk Wylde and many others.⁠

If you’d like to achieve the same sort of double stop licks as these players – add notes on the B string in the same frets as the notes you play on the G string in the 1st position of any minor pentatonic scale.⁠
