        Blues

        "Chuck Vanderchuck's 'Something Something' Explosion" is designed to help children ages 6 to 9 understand music and music composition by teaching basic musical concepts and performance skills through the study of popular song styles from around the world. Children are introduced to a new musical style: blues. They learn about the culture from which blues was born and then learn to perform basic blues rhythmic and melodic patterns through the use of fun, interactive games. 

        History of Blues

        In this clip from "Chuck Vanderchuck's 'Something Something' Explosion," Chuck and Ramona break down the history of Blues music. Blues music started in the southern United States in the late 1800s by newly-freed slaves, who sang about their troubles. It uses instruments like the harmonica and double bass, and has a unique chord progression that gives it its signature "bluesy" sound.
