Do you guys know any artists that use them regurarly? If not, atleast a few songs. I'd like to practice using them some more, but I can't seem to find many songs using them.

Asides from stairway-like double-stops, not looking for finger picking, more like, when they use them in adjacent strings. So something like

e--
B-2
G-1
D--

Talk Dirty to Me solo's a perfect example. Just, yeah, it's not Kirk Hammet playing that. XD

If you want to really get creative, throw them into solos you already know. Play around til you find what sounds good.

Chuck Berry and AC/DC. Although, Angus stole everything he does (even stage moves) off Chuck Berry.

For the guys who don't know, a double stop is simply two notes played at the same time.

Not quite my understanding of it, it's usually two notes fretted at the same fret on two adjacent strings as far as I've seen (happy to be corrected if I'm misguided!)


They don't necessarily need to be adjacent, but it's much more difficult to achieve this on most stringed instruments.

Technically it's just two different notes simultaneously, which requires two parts of the instrument, either at the fret for a guitar or something like the hammers on a piano, to be stopped together. You can keep going, triple stop for three notes, etc.

Wouldn't that be something else, like diads or triads instead or have I just confused my terminology along the way?? I thought two notes played simulatenously was a diad but if they were adjacent (on a guitar) then they could be called double stops and were often used in blues.
#22
I can't promise this is correct, but my understanding is that a dyad is a way of describing two different notes/pitches, most commonly as a chord. The term double stop specifically refers to the technique of simultaneously playing two different notes. In that sense, a double stop is a dyad. However, there may be many other ways of describing two notes together as a dyad when they are not being utilizing in a double stop.
