Now it's time to play through this whole tune with the backing track.

I hope you've had fun learning some of the basics of the blues. This is like the ABC's of music. So much of the music we have today comes from this style, and it's important to know at least the basics. Plus it's a lot of fun to play. And even if you never plan to be a blues player, you should know these basic tools and especially the 12 bar form, because you find it in a million different songs- in all different styles of music.There's of course a whole world to explore still, but the basic tricks and techniques that we've covered today will take you incredibly far.
