welcome to blues.ooo

Blues is a music genre and musical form which was originated in the Deep South of the United States
around the 1870s by African Americans from roots in African musical traditions,
African-American work songs, spirituals, and the folk music of white Americans of European heritage.
Blues incorporated spirituals, work songs, field hollers, shouts, chants, and rhymed simple narrative ballads.
The blues form, ubiquitous in jazz, rhythm and blues and rock and roll, is characterized by the
call-and-response pattern, the blues scale and specific chord progressions,
of which the twelve-bar blues is the most common. Blue notes (or "worried notes"),
usually thirds or fifths flattened in pitch, are also an essential part of the sound.
Blues shuffles or walking bass reinforce the trance-like rhythm
and form a repetitive effect known as the groove.
Blues as a genre is also characterized by its lyrics, bass lines, and instrumentation.
Early traditional blues verses consisted of a single line repeated four times.
It was only in the first decades of the 20th century that the most common current structure became standard:
the AAB pattern, consisting of a line sung over the four first bars,
its repetition over the next four, and then a longer concluding line over the last bars.
