    Twelve-Bar Blues - designed to make us blue?

    Lots of apparent calculations, which have been completed by stphn_helm. The answers range from 1 to 11. The answers involve several sequences with repetitions of either single numbers (five 5's in line 11) or pairs of numbers (3 5 three times in line 3). This suggests that it is unlikely that a single number )or a pair of numbers) represents a single letter. Perhaps each line represents a word.

    Some lines have relatively low numbers - such as line 11. Some have relatively high numbers - such as line 12. There is little difference between the higest and lowest number in each line.

    It could be that calculations were not required. Perhaps each calculation is really a pair of numbers, the first one from 1 to 15, the second from -6 to +5 (which is 12 different numbers).

    I have learned there are twelve-bar blues, eight-bar blues, and sixteen-bar blues. But I'm afraid I didn't understand too much about them. I need to leave the computer soon and I think I have the blues.

    Hey Woozil/Helm, glad to have you aboard! I just wanted to make sure you double check your work, as there seems to be one number missing, and one number added instead of subtracted...

    That looks like a hint that the calculations are important.

    I must say the most difficult part of creating this puzzle was coming up with some kind of title...I ended up with 12 different lines of code, so I thought about 12-bar. Original? not really.
