hi people
i would like to know some blues songs to work on because these days i'm making a repertoire for my practice sessions . so anyone ? [rolleyes]
You want the blues? Move to either New York or Mississippi. Or just become a jazz musician you'll get the blues real quick.

There was a guy who had just got to NYC and asked another guy where he could find the blues.

And the guy told him to just stand right here they'll find you. 1 4 5 intervals.

Hehehe , NY thats so far away from my home and i still study man , so it wont be possible althought i really want to study Music in a Music school ...

Anyway ;if you have some tips it would be great !
The tip was there. You missed it: 1 4 5 intervals:

I - I - I - I
IV - IV - I - I
V - V - I - I

If the key is C then here's the basic 1 4 5 progression that would be in a 12 bar blues. I hope this can get you started.
C-C-C-C
F-F-F-F
G-G-C-C

Start with C and go to F then to G and back to C.
