Darrin starts off this easy guitar lesson by performing an easy melody based from the major scale as follows. 3rd fret of the 4th string to the 5th fret to the 7th fret to the 8th fret and then descend back down the sequence. Next Goodman demonstrates how to create your own harmony of this melody with the use of double stops and using the intervals of major thirds, minor thirds, perfect fourths and perfect fifths. Darrin does a great job of explaining the difference between the different intervals and their shapes on the fret board and how to diatonically choose the correct ones to achieve the desired sound of the harmony. Darrin demonstrates the main riff from the song Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison as an example of how to execute this concept correctly.

Double Stops is the technique of playing two strings at the same time, usually done using the hybrid picking technique.

The major scale, aka the Ionian Mode, is a seven tone diatonic scale that is widely used in western music. The eighth duplicates the first at double its frequency so that it is called a higher octave of the same note, which its name is derived from Latin "octavus", the eighth.
