Teaching: Double-Stops

*Note: I had a moment today where I was waiting for my class to arrive…15min into session, they still weren’t there.  I thought, “Hmmm, no one wants to learn about double-stops from me today.” It turned out that I was at the wrong location (Cabin 14 when I was supposed to be at Tent D).  My class was on time and waiting…I was 15min late.  Sorry class!

• Learn arpeggio of chord in question;
