doublestop question

  1. hey all, sorry to hijjack another thread, I labelled a Francois Rabbath one under "music" but it's a general doublestop question as well, one of his pieces they've got you doing a doublestop w/ F (d string) and D (g string) ? how on earth does one accomplish this ?, use the thumb I guess ?
  2. just to clarify that ain't up there on the neck in usual thumb position that's 2nd octave

    I'm not familiar with the piece, but it might be more accessible on to play the F on the A string and the harmonic D (on the D string, of course).
  4. definately worth a shot, Rabbath doesn't play the D harmonic though he plays the stopped note, that crazy mo' fo'! actually made a slight error, I looked back at the book and it's actually an F# ...oops... i'll fart around with it tonight and see what happens....thanks Mike!
