Is there a book or web site that lays out some basic 8-bar, 12-bar, and 16-bar blues progressions for mandolin? Nothing fancy, could even be 4 chords to the bar exercises. I read through this section and found Niles Hokkanen's chord book which I will order today.
I’m a new member who plans to get back into mandolin after over 15 years. Took a detour to electric bass then classical guitar. Practicing basic blues progressions on bass really opened my ears to the blues and hearing all chord progressions in general. After learning the Blues progression I was amazed at how many Jazz soloists played over very basic Blues progressions.
