This time i've put together a lesson that shows how an 8 bar blues work (yes you heard me right) 8 bars not 12.
The 8 bar blues is the lesser known little brother of the 12 bar but has a character all of its own. It still uses the I IV and V chords but in a different progression.
I'd highly recommend listening to 'Key to the Highway' to hear a full song in the 8 bar style, my personal favourite version is by Big Bill Broonzy but theres some great versions by BB King and Eric Clapton.
