This fifth verse of Blue Strollin' is almost all about vibrato and double-stops. I'm using the term "double-stop" in an attempt to properly describe the playing of two adjacent notes at once. I actually prefer the term I heard from Paul Oscher way back in the 1960s - "intentional slop". Notice that when I'm employing this "intentional slop", the lower note is generally emphasized a little more than than the higher one. Also worth noting is the way I'm trying to retain the triplet feel of the song in the cadence of my vibrato. When used strategically, these two techniques can create a lot of tension, drama and excitement in your playing.
