Next song will be Da Blues

Link to check your grade and assignments




Create a blues song played with the piano, not loops.  You need to choose on of the formats below.  They are listed from basic to more complex.  You need to let me know which form you use.  After you get the form down in garage band you need to copy and paste it so that it is at least 2 min. long.  Let's talk about what these roman numerals mean.  So we are back at the piano for the lesson.  You must use the piano for the chords. 




In the key of C your 

I chord will be C

IV will be F

V chord will be G


Variations[edit]

"W.C. Handy, 'the Father of the Blues,' codified this blues form to help musicians communicate chord changes."[4] However, many variations are possible. The length of sections may be varied to create eight-bar blues or sixteen-bar blues.
In the original form, the dominant chord continued through the tenth bar; later on the V-IV-I-I "shuffle blues" pattern became standard in the third set of four bars:[5]
IIII
IVIVII
VIVII
About this sound Play 
The common quick to four or quick-change (quick four[6]) variation uses the subdominant chord in the second bar:
IIVII
IVIVII
VIVII
These variations are not mutually exclusive; the rules for generating them may be combined with one another (and/or with others not listed) to generate more complex variations.
Seventh chords are often used just before a change, and more changes can be added. A more complicated example might look like this, where "7" indicates a seventh chord:

IIVII7
IVIV7II7
VIVIV7
