12 Bar Blues backing tracks in all 24 keys, at three different tempos

A series of 72 blues tracks, aimed at musicians of all levels.

Each of the links below will take you to a page containing three tracks in that particular key. The tracks are:

  • Slow, chilled out blues played by an organ trio (60bpm)
  • Medium tempo funky blues played by a guitar trio (120bpm)
  • Fast ‘Texas blues’ played by a smokin’ hot guitar band (180bpm)

Each page also contains the relevant chord chart and tips on how to solo over the track. You can download the tracks for free, or just play them right here on the site.

If you are unfamiliar with the chord progression, start with the slow track, learn the chords and work on your soloing. When you are comfortable with the slow track, move on to the medium tempo one and eventually the fast one!
