I've been playing the basic blues scale forever without being able to add in any chords and the feature on this site makes no sense to me, can anyone please help me out and lucidly explain how to add chords to a blues jam?

Do you want to add chords to a regular 12bar blues? Or do you just want to change them for new sounds? Because a regular blues only uses that blues chords. But if you want to make it more jazzy or funky or such you could change the chord changes a bit and play little bit different chords, but I dont think you can add new chords to a regular 12bar blues song...


But of course you can solo with the blues scale in songs that doesn't necessarily is a blues..
I don't know how much that helped, but I think you've got to explain a bit more lucidly what you want to know :P

The easiest place to start is with the 1 - 4 - 5 progression (I - IV - V). This means you take the first chord of a key, the fourth chord and fifth chord and apply them to the twelve bar blues. In the key of G you would have a G chord, a C chord and a D chord.

Now you can change these into the corresponding 7th chord (which happens to be major 7th for all the them since they're all major). At this bit I'm a bit sketchy but I'm sure you can go ahead and place the blues scale right on top of these chords. You could also just play the G C and D power chords and solo over that in the G blues scale for a blues rock jam.


Here's the 12 bar blues progression:

I I I I
IV IV I I
V IV I I or V

Key of G:

G G G G
C C G G
D C G G or D


You can change the last G to a D if you're going to repeat the pattern, but it's best to stick to G if you're ending it.




Hope I helped.

learn the 12 bar blues jam with it .... and if you wanna write rock/hard rock riffs use powerchords of all kinds mixed with the blues scale.
