The Major Blues Style - 13

The Turnaround

Although many different turnarounds are possible in this style I have concentrated on what is probably the most common sequence for bars 11 and 12.

| A / D / | A / E7 / |

Example 1 - is just using the root notes from the chords to get you started.

Example 2 - is using the same root notes with "filling" in between.

Example 3 - is demonstrating using notes other than the basic root notes.i.e. using an E note for the A chord (strong notes for A chord = A - C# - E )
