Seven Days (March 2008) – 2


12 Bar Blues

The 7 Days always has set themes on Sundays and Wednesdays. Today’s theme was “blue” so I opted to demonstrate some blues guitar.

If you look closely, you will see that I have tinted the photo with twelve horizontal bars to represent the faithful old standby of the 12 bar blues, the bedrock of many a jam session, the background to far too much self-indulgent noodling and the core of countless worthy and memorable songs to boot. If you are a real music-geek you may even spot that the bars are in different tones, representing the I, IV and V chords that form the basis of the form!

By the way, the tarta de almendras compostelana I mentioned yesterday turned out well although it is just as well I like marzipan as the filling (a mixture of ground almonds, sugar, eggs and a bit of sherry) tastes a lot like it!
