when playing blues
would any two note combo from say a minor pentatonic be cool

or are theyre more specific more dominant ones you target?
Particularly in the case of the minor pentatonic, a good combination is something like


I believe (with my limited theory knowledge) that double stop implies a 5 chord, which then resolves back to the root (if you're playing in A, obviously) at the end.

3rds and 6ths are good
but in blues 4ths and 5ths sound really good if used right

If it's blues don't hesitate to put bends in your double stops, eg:


Things like that always sound cool. In terms of intervals, the minor third usually works.

You could also try something like sliding your doublestops. Here's an example:


That's in the key of A minor. Anyway, that's a really cool one to play over a minor progression. It works great on a song like Skynyrd's "That Smell" (which I pretty much stole the riff from, just adding a slide back and the last double stop at the 5th fret...).

Also try octaves for you double stops. They're a lot of fun as well, because you slide forward with them and create some really sweet sounds.
