This lesson will focus on the main change or theme for the blues which is the following progression (Key of A Blues):

This is known as a I (one) to IV (four) change in the blues and these two chords comprise the first eight bars of your standard, twelve-bar blues. The last four bars are the turnaround and will be addressed later.

This goes for any A Major to D Major type-change whether the chords are A Major, A6, A7,9,13, etc or D Major, D6, 7,9,13 etc.
