Masterpiece Generator refers to a set of text generator tools created by Aardgo. The tools are designed to be cool and entertain, but also help aspiring writers create a range of different media, including plots, lyrics for songs, poems, letters and names. Some generated content parodies existing styles and artists, whilst others are based on original structures. Our first generator, Song Lyrics Generator was launched in as a student magazine project. After it proved popular, we expanded to include plots, and the project grew from there.
The blues is known traditionally as a style of music played typically in 12 bars, featuring lyrics that highlight pain and suffering. The lyrics of blues songs are often as entertaining as they are tragic, and they tend to replicate poetry more than song lyrics, inspiring a sub-genre of poetry known as the blues poem. Blues poets remain true to the traditional lyrical content and structure of blues songs, while using poetic devices to make the blues lyric a natural for a poetic setting. Familiarize yourself with a traditional blues lyric.
The most common musical form of blues is the bar blues. The term "bar" refers to the number of measures, or musical bars, used to express the theme of a typical blues song. A bar blues is divided into three four-bar segments. A standard blues progression, or sequence of notes, typically features three chords based on the first written as I , fourth IV , and fifth V notes of an eight-note scale. The I chord dominates the first four bars; the IV chord typically appears in the second four bars although in the example below, Elmore James introduces it in the first four bars ; and the V chord is played in the third four bars.
