Blues Chords for Blues Guitar Scales

In my previous article about Blues Scales for Guitar I listed five essential blues scales.

The basic Blues Chords to use witrh these scales are:

C Blues = C7, F7, G7 (Please note you could also just use C7 F and G)

G Blues= G7, C7, D7 (Please note you could also just use G7 C and D)

D Blues = D7, G7, A7 (Please note you could also just use D7 G and A)

A Blues = A7, D7, E7 (Please note you could also just use A7 D and E)

E Blues = E7, A7, B7 (Please note you could also just use E7 A and B)

Experienced players would realise that there are many other possible chord patterns that could be used, this article is designed to help players that are new to playing blues and the idea is to keep it reasonably simple.
