Below are the root progression and guide tone lines (3rds and 7ths) for about the simplest (fewest changes) 12-bar blues imaginable. Simple, but effective, these changes are at the heart of songs from Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" to Frisell's "Blues for LA".

An ear training suggestion is to sing each of the lines, and in the player above, one voice is omitted from each chorus.

We will be adding guide tone lines to the rest of the changes on the site, so check back for updates.
