    I'm a big blues fan, but lately alot of is starting to sound very repetative. I'd say 95% of all the blues I own/listen to, are 12 bar. What other types of blues are out there that stray away from the norm (other than gospel)?

    The first tune, Revenge, has a very bluesy feel with an edge to it. I didn't play any of the bass tracks though. These were demos our drummer and singer made when they were in LA. Actually, Revenge doesn't even have a bass guitar in it.
