Blues Progressions Part 1

Hear some classic blues progressions in their original setting and in other genres.

Freddie King’s version of “Have You Ever Loved a Woman” uses the classic I IV V progression in a slow blues.

The early rock ‘n’ roll classic “Johnny B. Goode” puts the I IV V to a faster beat.

Billy Idol’s 1980s hit “Dancing With Myself” uses a slight variation on I IV V is a more modern rock context.
