Mixing Blues Licks + Chord

This is a beginner level lesson, where you learn two simple blues licks, and then you strum a chord. Even though you are playing along to a 12 bar blues progression, you actually only play one chord – A7. That’s because when the jam track goes to IV chord and V chord, you are playing the licks. Each time you are done playing the licks, you end up back on the I chord (A7). Pretty cool?

The jam track uses this chord progression:

A7 | D7 | A7 | A7
D7 | D7 | A7 | A7
E7 | E7 | A7 | A7
