I have been playing for about a year. Being such a new player,I do alot of "chording" and rythem practice along with little fills and alot of scale practice.Basically all that I really know is the I-IV-V progresion in the 12 bar blues format.I desprately need a break from this "sound". Any different progressions would be greatly appriciated.
Please list some of your favorites for me ....
thanks......

I'm very new to the blues thing, and I honestly don't understand the 12-bar progressions. If there is someone or some site that can help me out, I would be very thankful.
