Blues Chord Progression


You may know how to build:


* minor thirds
* major thirds
* perfect fifths
* major chords
* minor thirds
* seventh chords


Do you know these chords?
C7, F7, G7?

Here's another way to figure out seventh chords:

1. Start from the root note of the chord you want to play. That is ( F ) or ( G )...
2. Add a major third ( 4 half steps )
3. Then add a minor third (which is the same as a perfect fifth from the root).
4. Then add another minor third.


Seventh chord = major third + minor third + minor third ... or


Major third (combined with perfect fifth + minor third


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


C7 = C + E + G + Bb


F7 = F + A + C + Eb


G7 = G = B + D + F


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Blues Chord Progression


A "chord progression" is a series of chords played one after the other.


A "blues chord progression" is usually 12 bars long.


In this progression, a bar equals 4 beats. Clapping your hands 4 times (in a rhythmical beat) equals 1 bar. thus, 12 bars equals 48 beats.


Each bar begins at 1 again. That is, "1-2-3-4" - - - "1-2-3-4" as opposed to "1-2-3-4 - - - 5-6-7-8"


How To Read The Blues Chart


1. The chord is listed first; the beat numbers are listed below the chord names.
2. Play the chord for the given amount of beats listed (the bar # is also listed).


For example,


C7
(1-2-3-4)
Bar 1


This means that you will play a C7 chord while counting to 4
