One Stop Double Stop Shop - David Benedict

Take your bluegrass mandolin playing to the next level with this seven part video course on double stops. David Benedict takes you step by step through the process of constructing three common major chord double stops, some simple exercises to get them under your fingers, and then a common bluegrass song to apply this technique. This video series has been cleanly produced with detailed explanation of everything happening on the screen. As double stops are based on chord tones, knowing the names of the notes on the fingerboard and a little bit of chord theory is suggested.
