12 Bar Blues

12 Bar Blues

The 12 Bar Blues is one of the oldest popular music forms. Play a bit of the blues on our online piano. "12 bar blues" is an accepted form in many styles of music.

The form is always as follows, here shown in the key of C. Each letter gets 4 beats:

There are hundreds of variations on this pattern. Look below for the construction of the blues scale, which would be the "melody" for our chords.
