Blues is one of my favorites genres, and also one of my biggest influences.

 

It is also the biggest influence and the base for almost all of today's popular music, from Jazz, going through Soul, Rhythm and Blues, Pop, Funk, Rap, and being also the origins of Rock n' Roll, Hard Rock and even the most brutal Metal genres you can imagine.

 

One it's most basic forms is written around 3 chords and the Blue Notes, that give the Blues it's characteristic sound. On it's most traditional form it follows a 12-bar pattern around the mentioned 3 chords:

I - IV - V; which means: If we are on C major, those chords would be: C major - F major and G major.

 

But instead of going through tedious technical concepts, here's some (old) music:

 

Death Letter Blues - Son House

 

 

Me and The Devil Blues - Robert Johnson
