Howdy, I'm Trevor Marty, and I'd like to welcome you to my home recording studio. And today, I'd like to talk to you about blues tutorial. What is the blues? What are the blues? A standard blues progression is going to be a one, four, five. And, what I mean by that, so, if you start with A, right? Here's an A. Here's a one. A, so then we'll go four from there, A, B, C, D, alright? Well, then, the next one is D. We'll do a D minor. Four, that's four, five, E, alright? A, B, C, D, E. E is here, so then we'll play that. A, the first one. Four, which is the D minor. Then, we're going to go back to the A. And, you can feel that. Can't you feel that rhythm? Up to the E, down to the D, which is a four, back to the one, the A. Alright, that's a standard blue progression. My name is Trevor Marty. Thank you for coming into my studio and learning about the blues.
