Blues Intros

Lesson Description

In this lesson we will examine some common blues intros using a new voicing for a dominant 7 chord. You can use these intros to spice up your 12 bar blues. On many classic blues recording there is a tasty intro that kicks the song off.  They can be based on the root chord of the song or even start on the V chord.  Sometimes blues intros take the place of the first 4 bars of the 12 bar form as you will see in our first example. There are many options and ways to showcase your own personal style in a blues intro.
