This one’s for General Music, but you all might enjoy this. In General Music, we’re talking about and listening to blues, which is a precursor of jazz. We were talking today about the form of blues songs. We said that the lyrics, or words, follow an AAB pattern. That is, the first line is a statement of some sort. The second line repeats the first statement. Then, the third line is different. You can hear it in this song that I started to play in class, Every Day I Have the Blues.
The performance is by the famous blues guitarist and singer, B. B. King. You can see his picture below, with his guitar which he named Lucille. He has even written songs about Lucille.
