Hot-Rod Your 12-Bar Blues Progressions with Passing Chords, Backcycling, and Tritone Substitution.


All the information on this site is free. But if it is of value to you, I appreciate a tip.

Guitar Chord Progression:

Blues 12 Type2 - 12 Bar Blues - Type 2 - No turnaround - Blues

Other Blues progressions

A common variation is a change to the IV7 chord in the second bar, and then a change back to I in the third bar. The first line will then be:

I - / - / - / IV7 - / - / - / I - / - / - / I7 - / - / - /

I label progressions with a IV in bar 2 as Blues progression 2 and 2T if it has a turnaround

12B2 - 12-bar Blues progression 2 - No turnaround. For more information, go to 12-bar Blues progression Type 2. Download all files as a zip-file.
