This time, let's change the chord progression for a little variety! Instead of going to the V and IV chord, let's use a II and V chord. This is neat way to alter a blues to make it sound a little different. It's a variation that some blues players use to make a slightly jazzy sound because the II chord is an secondary dominant, it's the V of V.

We have exactly the same riff and form, but with a different chord position!
