It is characterized by its use of the 12-bar blues chord progression, call-and-response vocals, and the use of various instruments such as the guitar, harmonica, and piano. The lyrics often focus on themes of love, loss, and hardship. The genre has been influential in the development of many other musical styles, including rock and roll and jazz.
