Try this Blues improvisation:
Listen to ‘Burr Clover Farm Blues’ Muddy Waters. Can you pick out the 12 Bar Blues structure and notice the chord changes? It might help to focus just on the guitar.
Listen to the piano part of ‘Blues At Midnight’ by Peter Chatman, especially the introduction before the vocal comes in. Focus on the lower (left-hand) part; it’s an arpeggio on the 12 Bar Blues chords, not that different from what I have shown you in the video above (played better, obviously!).
