    Default Double-Stops Lessons

    I know there are lots of video lessons for double-stops out there (and I've done a few myself), but who, in your opinion, offers the best/clearest/most useful ones? In other words, which lessons most helped double-stops "click" for you?

    Sharon Gilchrist taught her system at Targhee several years ago and for me it was hands down the best explanation that completely clicked with me. I can do DS anywhere any key no problem. Check her course out on PegHead Nation - I'm sure its the same thing. They give a free month so see if it works for you. Pete Martin has a book on DS and do a Cafe search for "pickloser" - she wrote a guide for DS you can find here on the site.

    Here's the link for pickloser's guide

    I believe I've improved more under Sharon Gilchrist's teaching on Peghead Nation more than any other online lessons. She doesn't get into double-stops until her intermediate lessons. You don't have to work through every lesson in order but, if you do, you'll have a lot under your belt by the time you get to them.

    I watched a video recently that said practicing arpeggios would give you a roadmap to double stops. It's true.
