Watch the Minor Mellow online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Let's take a look at a minor blues with a hint of jazz. The progression is a basic 12 blues except all of the chords are minor. Some famous minor blues are "The Thrill is Gone" by BB King, "Since I've Been Loving You" by Led Zeppelin, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell (you may know the SRV version), and "Dirty Pool" by Stevie Ray Vaughan to name a few. In this example I jazz it up a bit by using some cool voicings that I learned from John Coltrane's pianist McCoy Tyner that work great in many styles of music.
