12-Bar Blues with 16-Bar Breaks
« on: December 16, 2012, 12:00:36 PM »
Hi all,
We've had a thread on the forum for a number of years, "8-Bar Blues With 12-Bar Breaks", and it occurred to me it might be interesting to expand on that idea by thinking of blues that are sung as 12-bar blues but switch to a 16-bar form for their solos.  I'll start the ball rolling with a couple that come to mind:
   * Mance Lipscomb's "Rocks And Gravel Makes A Solid Road"
   * Little Hat Jones' "Rolled From Side To Side Blues"
Any others you can think of?
All best,
