    Just a quick question, other than minor/major/dominant, which chords are used in blues? I saw a blues concert the other day and i couldn't figure out all the chords the rhythm guitarist was playing. Were they just perhaps a different fingering of a domenint?
    thanks
     
  2. depends on the song,what song were they playing ?

    peace

    7th (b7) and 9th chords are popular in the Blues genre...
     
  4. he could have been using an alternate tuning. lots of blues guys do that so they can play slide easier.
