This video may help an intermediate guitarist with some ideas for playing up the neck in the Key of G using 'anchor' notes to guide.  Thanks for watching!

Thx. Good stuff. May I add that if someone looks at this and thinks. "well that just for electric" Don't!
To me the double stops are great for acoustic. So hope you don't mind Maple if I throw in what this made me think of....

 Double stops. Great for acoustic.They add more beef to an acoustic which may get drowned out otherwise. Or if you just have someone who plays "so so" rhythm you can keep it fuller and more rhythmic while taking break.

Also, if you start getting these double stops down remember that you are 2/3's of the way to making a chord. Dig around and find another note that fits in. And another after that if it pleases. You can find cool chords like that and ones that will have you in firing position to hit the riffs.

Double stops great for Majory stuff too. Country, folk, whatever. Can get mandolin type feel or again, just more beef. Basically start by learning scales in 3rds. (for more see 3rds and beyond thread)

Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.
