Still Got The Blues Chords: Learn the progressions!


This is the title track from Gary Moore‘s 1990 smash hit album Still Got The Blues. The legendary album firmly established him on the map as one of the great British Blues Guitarists.

Ironically, this is not a blues, instead, it has all the diatonic chords from the A minor scale!

Using a (very) similar chord progression to Parisienne Walkways, this ballad lends itself to many hours of solo adventures.

In the key of Am and the time signature of 6/8 throughout, Stil Got The Blues starts off with these chords for the intro.

| Dm7 | Dm7/G | Cmaj7 | Fmaj7 |
| Bm7b5 | E7 | Am | N.C (A C E) |

The verse that follows is similar, but not the same.

| Dm7 | Dm7/G | Cmaj7 | Fmaj7 |
| Bm7b5 | E7 | Am Am/B | C (A C E) |
| Dm7 | Dm7/G | Cmaj7 | Fmaj7 |
| Bm7b5 | Bm7b5 | E7 | E7 |

Next, we have a bridge, and new chords here, notably an Em, not an E7 anymore.

| Am | Em7 | Am | D9 |
| F9 | E7#9 | Am | N.C (A C E) |

There is also a m8 section, here are the chords.

| Bm7 | E7 | Am Am/B | C |
| Bm7 | E7 | Fmaj7 Em7 | Dm7 | Am | N.C (A C E) |

The first solo is the same as a verse. This is followed by another bridge, again the same. This is then followed by another bridge but with different chords.

| Am | Em7 | Am | D9 |
| F9 | F9 | E7#9 | E7#9 |

The outro solo is like the first half of a verse, play this until the neighbours start complaining.

||: Dm7 | Dm7/G | Cmaj7 | Fmaj7 |
| Bm7b5 | E7 | Am Am/B | C (A C E) :||

Finally, the last chord progression holds a very long E7 before we resolve to the Am chord.

| Dm7 | Dm7/G | Cmaj7 | Fmaj7 |
| Bm7b5 | E7 | E7 | E7 | Am |
