GuitarControl.com released a new video guitar lesson from GuitarControl.com instructor and creator Claude Johnson. In this guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Claude Johnson teaches the second part of a guitar lesson on double stops.
“Double stops are basically playing two notes at the same time”, says Johnson, “a chord has three notes, but if you only play two it’s technically a double stop.” Claude demonstrates how to use double stops to bridge the gap between rhythm and lead playing and performs examples based out of the pentatonic scale and uses the hybrid picking technique to execute them. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.

The Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave. They can be found all over the world and are the main scale used in the Blues genre.
Dorian is the second of the seven major modes. The Dorian Mode is composed by playing the major scale and flattening the third and seventh note’s by one half steps, or simple sharpen the sixth note of the natural minor scale or Aeolian Mode. The name Dorian comes from the Greek referring to the “Dorian Greeks.” Since the Dorian Mode is made up from the major scale with a lowered 3rd and 7th (minor 3rd & 7th), it can be played over minor, minor 7th, and minor 9th chords and is compatible with many major chord progressions and keys. Many modern and classic rock guitarists have used the Dorian Mode in there compositions such as Carlos Santana, Toni Iommi, and Sound Garden to name a few, a notable song based in the Dorian Mode is Scarborough Fair by Simon & Garfunkel.
