PRINCIPLE 33 - BLUES STYLE COMPING

This is a Chicago style blues shuffle groove but I’m expanding upon the typical blues harmony with some nice diminished 7ths and dominant 9th and 13th chords. I’m adding chromatic walking lines under the chords too. Tasty!

Check out the C# mi7 chord as an accent and also notice that the first 12 bar section is straight forward but enhanced further on the repeat with the nice chromatic chord moves over the A7 and E7 turnaround.
