Still Got The Blues chords and progressions

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, 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 neighbors 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 Am chord.

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


Gary Moore’s signature song

This is the title track from Gary Moore‘s 1990 smash hit album Still Got The Blues. The legendary album firmly established Gary Moore on the map 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.

As a guitarist, a repertoire is the greatest asset you can acquire. It is your ticket to playing with other musicians.

To help you on this journey, I’ve gathered tunes I play with acoustic duos, Jazz trios, Indie/Rock/Party bands as well as large Soul/Motown ensembles.
