    How blue can you get?

    Post your favorite bluesmen/women, and share some good clips of great blues live or in the studio.
    Bluesy rock, and bluesy jazz are fine also. Just keep it tasty, and blue. I'll start it off, pile on, at will.

    Skip James


    Stormy Monday Blues (written: T Bone Walker)
    Bobby "Blue" Bland,vocal
    Wayne Bennett,gtr
    Nashville,1962
    Vox/guitar panned hard w/ the reverb from each on the other side. backline in the middle. Beautiful mixing. Best I've ever heard in the blues. I can listen to this for days, and used to, sometimes.




    Etta James w/ Dr. John performing "I'd Rather go Blind". Gives me chills.


    How blue can you get? Ask the inmates. BB is magic.

    Albert King had two of my favorites




    My favorite, as done by Cream



    Muddy Waters is one of my other favorites, and there are a host of others, but I'll let Elwood tell you about them



    I really dig the Black Keys and some of the bluesy stuff Ray Lamontagne do as well

        This was the blues/rock song (in Cm) that made me pick up guitar.

        Smooth and electric is how I like my blues.

                I camped out by the radio for months to get this on cassette as a kid. It's a how-to on electric blues guitar techniques.
                Octaves, Hybrid Picking, Phrasing around the snare, everything. My favorite blues/rock.

                    I just got into this guy a couple years back, the real deal, a unique player, a walking story, gone too soon.

                        I always enjoyed this, and if you've never heard it, the RL Burnside/Jon Spencer Blues Explosion collaboration A Ass Pocket Of Whiskey is a worthy album.



                        I really enjoy Gaby Moreno and Esperenza Spaulding for modern female vocalists
