Turn That Boat Around!

By Darren DeFranco


Hey guys,

Today we’re going to look at a very critical blues topic – the turnaround. The turnaround is basically a riff that signals to the other players that the 12 bar blues is coming to an end. Also, it serves to put a neat little bow on our progression and sounds like an ending. Today we’re going to learn the most common turnaround pattern in the blues.

Have fun guys!


Practice and master this turnaround pattern and you’ll be ready to move on!
