Blues songs to practice chords ?

Hey guys, I'm growing more and more interested in blues and I thought I'd try 12 bar blues. The problem is, I have no experience with playing chords in blues, only soloing.

If you got something that can help me, please share

Check out Stormy Monday by t-bone walker. Covered famously by the allman bros.

Try Stevie Ray Vaughan's Mary Had a Little Lamb. Pretty great tune, fairly easy, and it's a nice arrangement of a 12 bar blues(for part of it).

You could learn how to use jazz dominant triad (root third flat 7) and play it through the changes and diffrent keys through the circle of fifths. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roL...be_gdata_player hope this helps.

This is the first time I see the circle of fifths being used, was starting to wonder what I learned that for. This is definetly going on my to-do list, thanks for throwing in theory, it's what I like the best to be honest.

Thanks for the other songs guys, just enough to practice without being overloaded.
