Minor Blues - Lesson 1, Part 2

The progression with only minor chords may be a bit boring. If we substitute the v7 with its parallel major V7 chord, then we get a kind of lift in the third line. This second group of minor blues progressions has the chords i - iv - V7.

This time I have also included a turnaround chord (the V7 chord), as it will give the V7-i resoulution when we go to the next verse. What we do is actually that we choose Harmonic minor instead of Natural minor for the very reason that we have harmonic minor. A Type 1 progression, still in Am will be like this:

Here is the set of backing tracks for this progression.

As a Type 2 progression, it will be like this:

And again, here are the backing tracks.
