Slow Blues Jam Track – Key of G

A “slow blues” really lets blues guitarists showcase their soloing skill. The following smoky slow blues backing track in 12/8 time is similar to “Texas Flood” by Stevie Ray Vaughan or T-Bone Walker’s “Stormy Monday”. Just a standard  12-Bar Blues progression in the key of G, but with the added interest of a quick change to the IV chord (C7) in the second bar and a busier I-IV-I-V turnaround.

    @adam laurie: I inserted a direct link to the file mp3 file used in the jam track loop. Look for it directly below the jam track loop. You should be able to right-mouse click that link and then select “Save Link As” to download the file. There probably is a more elegant way to code that but, alas, I am just a simple guitar player! I hope that helps.

    Slow and bluesy rhythm that’s great for improvising blues + combining modes!

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Thank you!

    Many years ago, Net sports activities book betting was risky.
    Gene Wojciechowski’s ode to college football is a great read.
    Among those that came out in the wish list is a better line play, addition of team entrances, and crowd atmosphere.
