David's Tip of the Day: Value of Repitition, Part 3 (Chorus Forms AAA)

David Barrett Admin's picture

In "Rocker" Little Walter plays the opening four-bar lick thee times. This creates the first of five common Chorus Forms, known as A A A. The lick is played (A) and then it's repeated two times (A A). Pretty cool that you can play one lick over all of the chords of the 12 Bar Blues and it still works.

Take a listen to LW's "Juke" and figure out which Chorus Form he's using in the opening chorus.
