    If MomboJumbo4 goes to this excellent web site, he should know that lesson number 1, by a guy named Spangler, refers to the "twelve bar blues scale." Actually there is no twelve bar blues SCALE. The twelve bar blues is a basic chord progression pattern, the classic I, IV, V chord progression and its variations.

    While there is a blues scale, it should be noted that the blues scale is separate and distinct from the twelve bar blues pattern.

    I didn't check through the many other blues lessons there, but I am confident they do use the correct terminology.

    This came from a photocopy my teacher gave me, does anyone know the source? I'm not sure if I should really be posting this because it obviously came from a book at some point.

    edit: (scroll way down) can anyone help me get rid of all this extra space? :(
