Double stops make up a huge part of what country guitar is about.

You will hear these in every song on your local country station!

So, what is a double stop? Two notes played simultaneously usually with fingers or a combination of a finger and pick.

I’ve decided to include 5 lessons on double stops for 5 different chords that you’ll likely encounter in any country song.

There are open string licks and at least one lick that can be transposed to any chord in every lesson.

These are great for fills when there aren’t any vocals or for soloing with! Check out these licks for a G7:
