Yep. Or use the tritone to get you to bar 5: |G7 |C7 A7|D F7|Bb Db7|C |I'm not sure I would suggest this but I guess you could try |G7 |C7 Eb7|Ab B7|E G7|C7 | That will get you there. It start on the IV chord on measure two and gets you to the IV chord on measure 5.
Actually Bird changes are "bluesy." They sound good and if you play over them in a blues style (as Bird did), it will sound like the blues. However, I can't imagine any way to make Giant Steps changes fit the blues. Maybe Trane could do it...It's not a "bluesy" chord progression (neither was Bird changes) but it's a unique way to get to IV..
