    For instance if it’s bluegrass/OT/folk in G you could do:

    G - 45xx
    C - 52xx
    D - 24xx or 74xx or x45x

    Then find them somewhere else:

    G - x52x
    C - x23x
    D - x45x

    Finally

    G - xx23
    C - x53x or x23x
    D - x45x or xx52

    You’ll learn how to move around efficiently and how to mute strings/hit only the ones you want. Go slow and just strum them to a chord progression at first and watch your fingers, you’ll see the patterns develop, then try out on tune. As to your question about when to play them, just put them in a tune be it bluegrass to classical and see if you like it, if you don’t move on and try something else. It really only matters what you think sounds good, some people may frown and like I said in another thread of yours...politely ignore them and have fun.
    I'm trying this!

    Caleb Klauder did an AMAZING presentation on double-stop playing yesterday in a webcast. In a nutshell, if you slide the G chop chord up so that you're in the fifth position (I think) with your index finger on the D on the A string, you have a double stop on the middle two strings that you can play the G scale over, flat the 3rd, etc. and do all these Monroe/fiddle/OT improvs over with your hand right there. He also talked a lot about the value of the major (and minor) arpeggio in that position. Without changing positions, you have the four and five chords right there at your fingertips by dropping up or down a string. I don't know why this hasn't occurred to me before! I've watched Compton do that 100 times without comprehending quite what voodoo was happening. Jim Garber: Did I see you on the list of attendees when I scanned it? I thought I did. : )

    You have to download the free TefView program. Then you open the files with that program. It's quite cool

    This chap talks about double stops in the key of G using an octave for added clarity!
