The 12 Bar Blues From Way Back When To Now With Robert Johnson And More

Speakin' the Blues: Introduction to the Blues - Top 10 Albums

Robert Johnson was one of the first artists to play and record in the 12 Bar Blues format on guitar. When playing the 12 Bar Blues, a guitarist plays 3 chords, usually 1, 4 & 5 chord of the key(example: E7, A7 & B7 chords). The complete turnaround lasts for 12 measures, then repeats. Examples of Robert Johnson’s use of the 12 Bar Blues are Crossroads and Sweet Home Chicago, both recorded back in 1936. Many artists have had major hit songs using this chord arrangement including Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and many more!
