double stops are two notes played at the same time, they kinda give you a little taste of a whole chord while playing used a lot in blues and country(really all types of music), check out the original tricks they have some double stop tricks in there.

A great song for double stops is 5150 by Van Halen. It's kinda tough, but a really great tune.

I will try to help you, A double stop is when you hit 2 strings at the same time, ok thats the double part of it, ok then you stop,for a split second, thats the stop part of it, thats why its called double stops, thats the simplest way i know how to put it.

It really helps if you use a hybrid picking style -- especially when you start playing with a lot of string skipping like say a note on the 1st string and one on the 3rd or 4th. Many of the country licks that incorporate double stops are simply unplayable without hybrid picking.
