...when I play around with the A Dorian it ends up sound like an out of key blues scale.

Don;t forget that a lot of Blues chords are Major chords. Many people get confused playing a minor pentatonic over dom7 chords. There is a lot of major playing going on with blues.

So a minor mode may not be what you want unless you are playing a minor blues. But the exercise I gave you is of course suited to minor as it's just one minor chord.

After you get it going you can take that am chord and slide it from fret 4 to fret 5 for a little more interest. also you can slide it from from 5th fret to 7th fret. Technically that's Am to Bm but unless you decide to hang out on Bm just keep thinking of it as Am because all you will do is slide it up and then get right back on fret 5.

after that you can play Am chords at different locations. Slide into them as well or slide them up two frets and back. for all practical purposes all you will be doing is playing a single Am chord. ... but your lead work will add subtle differences.
