Everyone loves the sweet and sultry sound of soul guitar, and these double-stop licks are what really sets this style apart from others. Throughout this lesson, the tasty double-stop approaches of Cornell Dupree, Steve Cropper, and Jimi Hendrix will be discussed, along with the proper techniques utilized with them.
The slides between the positions are very important in this style—I’ll show you how these slides and hammers and pulls are all parts of important chord positions to know.
Partial chord forms are essential to the lead guitarist as well as the rhythm player, and this lesson is really aimed at making you a much more complete player. You'll find that these techniques are truly applicable to all styles of playing, and you'll be taken step-by-step through each position and technique. Enjoy!—Arlen Roth
