This is the place to discuss our love for blues as well as some its children (gospel, soul/r&b, jazz, funk, rock, etc) that occupy some of the same stylistic real estate, but the focus is on blues. This is the place for those who know the score and want to discover more; post videos, links, photos, album & concert reviews, and upcoming shows. Have questions? Ask. Suggestions? Give.
Don't be shy, to be human is to have the blues every so often. We're all in the shit together, let's celebrate our misery.
To start us off, here's Big Mama Thornton with the Muddy Waters Blues Band. Peep Otis Spann on the keys. I'm pretty certain this is the song god puts on when he's feeling down.
EDIT: I'm a bit of a purist and have no interest in hearing Jimmy Page or Clapton rip wailing, overwrought solos or Jack White doing soulless covers of Son House songs. However, blues is blues, so we'll allow it. Just remember, this is a blues thread, not just a blues guitar thread. Keep your guitar god videos to a minimum, please.
