In this lesson we'll learn to add the IV & V chords for a complete 12 bar blues chord progression in E major.

E major (I) "one chord"
A major (IV) "four chord"
B7 (V7) "five-seven chord"

In this tutorial we'll just keep playing the open E & B strings even though they aren't part of the A & B chords. It sounds fine for blues to use this type of approach!
