Jazzing Up Your Blues

So, you know how some blues is very jazzy, and uses a lot of substitution chords? And the guys who can play through those changes are really tasty? Here are a few progressions to play around with that if you try hard will help push your soloing out of straight blues and into jazz. On each page we get a 12-bar blues that goes jazzier than the previous until its hard to hear the blues in it much anymore. Then of course we stop, or we get kicked out of the blues section of the lessons. Why am I writing like this is a Stan Lee comic? To show you that you can put html tags in your lessons, of course! :)
