Blues Chord Progression Question

Post by SethEli » Wed Mar 22, 2017 3:32 pm

Hello, I am Seth and just learning blues guitar. I have a question. I wanted to start off learning some simple blues chord progressions. A friend of mine who plays guitar told me that the GUNS N ROSES song "I USED TO LOVE HER" is a blues chord progression, so I learned it... Others have told me that song is not an example of a blues chord progression so now I am confused. Could u kindly tell me if that song is a blues chord progression and explain why or why not? What makes a blues chord progression? Thank you kindly! Seth

Not an easy question, because Blues can be interpreted strictly or not. The song is not a typical 12 bar or 8 bar Blues, but contains Blues elements and Slash's Blues guitar style. A poll doesn't help to answer.
