The Blues Thread

Georgy Zhukov

Recommended Posts

There are some Blues fans among us, let us come together and talk about this old and very American form of music.

I will kick off with the King of Mississippi Delta Blues, Robert Johnson. No overdubs, that is all him.

Just him and his guitar.

From Blind Lemon Jefferson to Joe Bonamassa and everyone in between and beyond.

What about Lead Belly?

A man and his guitar.

Raw and simple as it gets.

Been meaning to bring up Leadbelly but I am glad someone else did.

He once went to prison for killing a man. Got pardoned when he played for the governor. The blues had a mystical thing going on, they say Robert Johnson sold his soul for skills on the guitar, but Leadbelly sung his way out of a long prison sentence.

How can you not include this man............not the "best version" as the poster claims as he was out of sorts and in a shitty mood during these shows at Konserthuset but not much video of him playing this song around

one less well known blues songs of Jimi's
