    I am looking for an easy popular slow blues song, trying to work on the sound of my single notes.

    thanks

    Could you be more specific? Blues can be of many shades... You start with three chords, but then it might become much more complicated...

    YouTube. A zillion blues backing tracks. Any flavor you like.

    I know you said tab but just pull something up and play. It’ll come to you.

    The Thrill Is Gone?

    As others have suggested, slow blues is slow blues. I - IV - V. Three chords and off you go.

    Not to nitpick but The Thrill is Gone uses minors for the 1, 4 & 5 and has that spiffy major a half step above the 5.

    Find a tab for Freddie king's "hideaway". once you get it down, find one for Clapton's bluesbreaker version and see how to expand it.

    edit: sorry, I see you are asking for slow blues - sorry.

    A real nice slow blues for practicing minor pentatonic playing is the minor blues. This is a ZZ Top tune called Blue Jean Blues played by the beyond amazing Jeff Healey rip.

    Blue Jean Blues,


    And here's over 10 minutes of jam time over this cool tune. Just play B minor pent,

    The Thrill is Gone is a good starter.

    I remember walking over to my friends house when I was a teen and The Thrill Is Gone came on the radio for the/my first time. I guarantee you the thrill had just begun. I then saw BB play his new song at the Filmore West soon after its release. I think it was a tour to promote that new album. I've seen BB twice, the other time I actually got to shake his hand, haven't washed it since, a bit cheesy after 50 years.
