Casso's Strut jam track: Texas Blues
Backing track instruments: electric guitar, bass and drums.
Progression: 12 bar in E.
Suggestions: The E Blues Scale is the obvious starting point with this one. You can sit on that all day and all night long or venture out and play within the notes in between the blues scales. A good place to start with this is following the chromatic runs into and out of each change in the progression.
