The Jazz Blues Chord Progression – Step By Step – 12 Bar Blues to Jazz Blues Changes

In this jazz blues guitar lesson, I show you how to play a jazz blues chord progression. We start with a basic 12 bar blues and step by step turn it the regular blues changes into the jazz blues chord changes. Whether you are comping for someone else, playing solo jazz guitar, or learning to solo over the blues, the jazz blues chord progression will serve as a guide to cool sounds.

The jazz blues chord progression is one of the most important types of jazz chord progressions. It’s been recorded on thousands of jazz records, and it’s surprisingly challenging to play over.

When you are learning jazz guitar, it’s important to get the sound of a “jazz blues” internalized. Eventually, you will draw upon the jazz-blues changes, even when you’re playing over a standard blues.
