Watch the The B7 Chord online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Blues Guitar For Beginners

Many R&B tunes from the 1940s and 1950s have what's called an AABA form - an eight-bar section (the "A" section") that's played twice, followed by a contrasting eight-bar section (the "B" section") and then a repeat of the original A section. As a result, they often feel like an eight-bar blues with a bridge. Singer Etta James' "Steal Away" is a classic example; you can also check out guitar-driven versions by Raful Neal and (with a funk-groove update on the slow-blues original) Walter "Wolfman" Washington.
