One of the most common blues clichés is playing the 6ths, so called because the double stops (two notes played at the same time) are the interval of a 6th. In this lesson, I map out for you the basics of doing this on the blues in the key of A. Notice that it's the same fingering pattern in three different spots, as it starts on the 5th fret for notes played over the 'A' chord, starts on the 10th fret for the notes played over the 'D' chord, and starts on the 12th fret for the notes played over the 'E' chord. Listen to the .mp3 of this on the player above to get an idea of how it sounds.
