Blues Guitar Rhythm Lesson 9: A New Form

Blues Rhythm 9: A New Form

While the form we have used so far is one of the most common in contemporary blues, frequently blues progressions will add an additional IV chord in the second measure and a V chord in the twelfth bar.

| I7  | IV7   | I7   | I7 |

| IV7 | IV7  | I7  | I7 |

| V7  | IV7 | I7 | V7 :||

In the key of A, this progression would look like this:

| A7 | D7 | A7 | A7 |

| D7 | D7 | A7 | A7 |

| E7 | D7 | A7 | E7 :||

This progression can be used with any of the previous chord voicings and rhythm style we have previously used.  We will pick a few and play them during your lesson.
