12 bar blues for mandolin

I hope you can put together a lesson or lessons based on 12 bar blues, turnarounds, and how to work these into a song or two. It would be great fun and hopefully accessible for a beginner/intermediate level.

Cool! Please post a YouTube video here in this thread of a song similar to what you have in mind.

I’ll check this out when I get home today, but is this one of those instances where we could take the pentatonic lesson you just did, shift everything up 2 frets and get the minor pentatonic scale?

Can you make some blues songs? On mandolin

Sure! I have quite a few solos written in blues style. Please go to the mandolin lesson page and filter by blues in the tag list
