Playing "double stops," means playing on two strings at once. You can
find Double Stops in Blues and RockĀ“n Roll, from the Stones to Heavy
Metal are the possibilities for this simple technique.
But there are triple stops (three strings) and quadruple stops
(four strings) as well.

For a Double Stop you hold two strings with one finger or you use ring
finger and pinky.

Recommended songs: Chuck Berry used Double Stops in nearly every song!
See "Johnny Be Goode", "Roll over Beethoven" and many others!
