hello

I want to make my own blues / rockblues, the cassicl about lossing a girl. this is my first try to write my own song, so I was wondering if there is a "standart "chord progession that I can "borrow", like a chord progession that used by many but you can put your own licks and touch to it to make it your own, if you understand what I am meaning

I-IV-V is as basic as it gets for blues. Have a look at this tutorial.

Or to go more in depth have a look at the Blues Style course, which appropriately, starts right in at the 12 bar blues I-IV-V form!

Try this :

E - C# - F# min - B

you can change any note of the chord to make it sound better for your song!

let us know how it goes and good luck :)
