Below is the lesson for “Classical Etude” by Rock Class 101.
This classical composition uses double stops to effortlessly carry the melody up and down the neck. A double stop refers to playing two notes simultaneously. This is best demonstrated in Melody A.
We can hear two notes (string 4 and 1) being plucked in unison followed by a pedal tone of the open E string. This “pedal tone” happens on every & of the beat (bars 1-6), which creates a “flowing sound” as one chord (double stop) moves to another.
