I've searched the threads, but all I can find are people looking for solo/lead stuff. I'd really like to experement with some cool blues rythem stuff, but all I know is a basic 12 bar shuffle that uses powerchords:

A----7----9----7
e----5----5----5 (Rinse & repeat as necessary)


I don't mind the sound, and I practice it for structure, but after a while it starts to sound a little cheesy. I'd like to practice some stuff with 7ths and such, but I'm not sure where to go. Any songs/lessons that have solid examples would be greatly appriciated.

try this out.

a---7---9---10---9
e---5---5---5----5

for the d part, try this chord out.

e
b-5
g-5
d-4
a-5
E-x

hope that helps some =P

^ Yeah, I took a look at that lesson and tried it out, but honestly I didn't get a whole lot from it. I'm not sure if it's just a case of my not understanding the material, but I coulden't turn that into any kind of blues melody. I feel it would be easier if I had some kind of laid out example, like a song or a series of progressions. Appriciate the suggestion though

Well here's a midi file I quickly put together with Guitar Pro, is it the kind of thing you're looking for?

The chords are:
E | A7 | E | E7 | A7 | E | B7 | A7 | E | B7 | E
With a few open strokes thrown in between changes.

Tab:

     E               A7                 E                   E7

The brackets is where I let the chord ring.

I'm sure someone could make a better example but this isn't too bad.

Thanks man. I'm at work right now, but I'll print that off and give it a shot when I have the time. I appriciate the effort, I'll let you know how I do

I don't know if this is what you're looking for or not, but give a listen to T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday Blues". It's a 12 bar progression with 7th's Like I said - don't know if this is what you're looking for, but it's a cool song and you can do a lot with it as far as rythym is concerned.
... SMILE! People will wonder what you are up to...
