Nasty Latin Dorian Blues

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey guys,

Today we’re looking into the Latin blues style, similar to what Carlos Santana would play. We’re going to follow a basic 12 bar blues progression, but substitute chords from the Dorian mode. The most important difference from a regular minor blues is that the IV chord is going to be major. This actually serves to lighten up the normally somber minor blues.

We hope you guys enjoy the lesson!


Master this progression and you’ll be good to go. Then, try playing a few Dorian blues progressions of your own in a variety of keys for extra practice.
