good question - - could be.

"A double stop, in music terminology, is the act of playing two notes simultaneously on a melodic percussion instrument (like a marimba) or stringed instrument (for example, a violin or a guitar). In performing a double stop, two separate strings are depressed ("stopped") by the fingers, and bowed or plucked simultaneously."

though here, the strings don't sound too "depressed" (insert rim shot).

thanks,

terry

Great vid! Not being a Jerry player I find them especially interesting!!!

Question Gm7 on guitar? I hear in alot of versions the full strum from JG and no 7th.

Watched Shoreline 10-3-1987 and saw a minor triad of G over that spot. However I do hear the 7th off the keys.

Also sometimes when Bobby is playing slide I hear the 7th. Just nowhere else... Hmmm.
