I'm required to write a 12 bar blues song for my guitar class. we're supposed to use the standard 2h4 repeated. . like we all know as a very simple blues pattern, also used in the Grateful Dead song: Truckin'

if anyone can give me something more original sounding for the 12step blues pattern itd be great. ill use it to build a song around.

ps. as long as its still 12 bar blues, feel free to go outside the box. =]. any 12step riffs or chords would be appreciated.

so you wanna make a 12 bar, and the rhythm is already layed out for you? So what are you asking us for?

Make a standard 12 bar blues in E for example:

.
e-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
B-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
G-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
D-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
A-2-2-4-4-5-5-4-5-4
E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

And solo around it in the E minor blues scale.
