12-Bar Jazz-Blues Rhythm
12-Bar Jazz-Blues video tutorial... In this lesson you'll find 3 examples of standard jazz-blues progressions in G and Bb with different harmonic solutions. Chord-charts, chords tabs and backing tracks are available for this lesson.
Example 1: 12-Bar Jazz-Blues in G
In this first example I played a standard jazz-blues in G. Note the II-V in the fourth bar, the I7-IIm7-IIIm7-VI7b9 progression in the seventh and eighth bar, again the IIm7-V7 in the ninth and tenth bar and finally the turn-around.
Example 2: 12-Bar Jazz-Blues in Bb
In the following video I played another standard jazz-blues in Bb. The structure is the same as before except for the dim7 chord (C#dim7) in the sixth bar.
Example 3: 12-Bar Jazz-Blues in G
Another standard jazz-blues progression. Same structure as before but instead of playing the turn-around at the end of the progression, I chose two II-V in a row.
In this Pdf you'll find every chord fingering that I used in the previous three videos.
