Comparative Minor Blues Progressions

Minor Blues are constructed primarily around minor chords that give a more dark, mournful sound than Major Blues. Below are examples of the three main types of Minor Blues. The "i-iv-v" type where all three chords are Minor. The second is the "i-iv-V" type where the "V" chord is a Dominant with the other two Minor. The last is the "i-IV-V" where only the "i" chord is a Minor with the other two Dominant. You will find that the Minor Blues Progression translates well into Rock. Although not a strict Minor Blues, you will want to check out Black Magic Woman which is a great example of a “Pop Blues” progression
