The 12 bar blues format is at the heart of thousands of songs.
Playing a basic 12 bar blues chord progression is simple.

Lets take 3 chords A7 D7 and E7.
Spend one bar strumming on each of the chords below.

A7     A7     A7      A7
D7     D7      A7     A7
E7      D7    A7     A7

There we go 12 bars set out in 3 rows of 4.

Or we can vary this basic pattern for example.

A7      D7      A7      A7
D7      D7      A7      A7
E7      D7      A7     E7
