Watch the Week 3: Special Blues Forms (1st Three Forms) online guitar lesson by Bob Wolfman from Essential Guide To Jazz Blues Comping

Some things to keep in mind:

1. These forms are used for traditional styles of blues as well as jazz and more contemporary styles of jazz.
2. There is almost no limit as to what sequence or rhythms may be used with these forms.
3. As with almost any other types of chords or style, you should experiment and explore every possible combination, rhythm, and usage.

For listening examples and to observe the diversity available with these forms, check out recordings by electric blues guitarists like Mike Bloomfield with The Electric Flag or with Al Kooper. Bloomfield is using some of these forms in a sequence that many have copied, and thus it has become a bit of a "cliche", but still sounds great. HIs playing is of course more in the traditional Chicago blues style. On the other hand, listen to great guitar players such as Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, or George Benson to name a few. These great artists use these forms to "groove" over simple vamps in a more jazzy style. The term "groove" says it all really...referring to a conduit or channel that you ride along.
