Watch the G7 Blues online guitar lesson by Rob Garland from Melodic Soloing: Blues Chord Tones
Now we've played a G7 chord and looked at the notes that make up the chord, so let's examine the I-IV-V chords of a G7 blues. Let's play the chords, examine where the chord voicings come from and see what the notes are.
|G7 |G7 |G7 |G7 |
|C7 |C7 |G7 |G7 |
|D7 |C7 |G7 |D7 ||
The I chord G7 has the notes G-B-D-F, the IV chord C7 has the notes C-E-G-Bb and the V chord D7 has D-F#-A-C.
Play the chords and see the chord tones inside them. The voicings I used were G7 (CAGED E7 shape), C7 (CAGED A7 shape) and D7 (CAGED C7 shape)**.
Next, we'll hear chord tones of the blues against a jam track.
