Twelve bar blues

Twelve bar blues es una progresión de acordes, típica del blues y estilos posteriores. Adémas de la armonía, el blues utiliza un esquema de 12 compases de 4/4 y ritmo shuffle.

Un ejemplo básico es el siguiente:

I IV I I

IV IV I I

V IV I I

Son posibles algunas variaciones. Como por ejemplo el uso de acordes con séptima antes de un cambio:

I IV I I7

IV IV7 I I7

IV IV7 I I7

V IV I II7


Cuando el último compás es de Dominante se llama Turnarround y puede contener frases que le dan color.

Un ejemplo:

I        -     -      -        
Woke up this morning with the 
IV     -   -    -   I - - - I7 - - - 
blues down in my soul 
IV        -     -      -

V7    -   -    -   I - - - I7 - - -
