I am a complete noob when it comes to figuring out if a blues song is built up from twelve bar blues (just haven't like done it like...ever). So is "the thrill is gone" by B.B. King a twelve bar blues song? If not, I'll need some other songs by him which go in twelve bar blues.

Also, if "the thrill is gone" isn't a twelve bar blues song, can somebody tell me why?

I'd say so, looking at the bass (only looked at first 24 bars tho)

It's a 12 bar blues in B or Bb depending on the show, lol. Another song in the twelve bar blues form is red house. Also in the key of Bb.
