    Add to that Pickloser's Guide to Double Stops, which is so easy to understand and really goes a long way to helping you discover the world of double stops.
    Having something to say is highly over rated.

    The entire staff
    funny....

    OMG. Exactly the right resource at exactly the right time. You saved me hours and hours of work. Mr. GUnter, if you're in Atlanta, I'll buy you a drink.

    Anybody know anything about Tim Piazza? His mind works just like mine, poor boy.

    You'll find a link to it in this thread. Also worth mentioning Frank Geiger's BUILD ANY CHORD ANYWHERE PDF. Also excellent. Link also in this thread.
