Lesson notes

Suzie Q is an example of a blues tune that is not in the 12-bar format. It is an 8-bar progression that features a 2-measure riff based on the E blues scale. This 8-bar phrase is really a mini version of the A-A-B-A form that was common in jazz and standard songwriting starting in the 1920’s and is still popular today.
