A Blues Turnaround With The Blues Half Step Ending

This is something fun you can use either by yourself or with a band…

This is the TAB for the version where you use the V chord to start the form again. For the end, just change the F9->E9 to Bb7->A7 (or 9, or 13 if you want… have fun with it!)

    Since you have 5 easy blues solos out,how about 5 easy blues rhythms or better yet a combination of rhythm and solos that I can use and to move different solos in and out of those spots.

    The last bit about either using the half-step to resolve to the V (for another round – a turn-around) or the I (to end the song) is so familiar to my ear and satisfying to now know.

    Again with the perfect timing! been working on the challenge and have been stymied by this very thing. Particularly, how to use this when continuing as opposed to ending. Thanks very much.

    Thanks Griff, you have re-awakened my interest in playing guitar again, even if my fingers are stiff (mild arthritis)and the cords harder to form now! Thanks.

    Very useful considering the latest challenge.

    Thanks Griff. Iconic sound. Also very versatile. Thinking Brown eyed girl riff. You can add a warmer timbre if played on the second and fourth strings starting on the 14th fret,in the key of A,
    Your ideas are always a great catalyst,gets my old brain cranking!! Regards,Chris.
