Default Blues music....Who's a fan?

I recently have become addicted to the blues. Clapton, B.B., Buddy, Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, you name it and I've been jamming to it. It's awesome for writing papers and studying, as well as fishing on the boat.


Any others a fan of the blues or am I alone? Any suggestions on different artists to jam too?

Love the blues......took my wife to see Bobby Bland a while back. We were by far the whitest and youngest people in the room, but it was a great show. I see he's passed away now.

Unfortunately I never really know who it is I'm listening to. The only 2 I can think of that you haven't named right now is Hound Dog Taylor and Bobby Bland.

Damn you guys threw out some heavy hitters. I cant believe I forgot some of those.


I recently learned of smokestack lightning in a intro to jazz/blues class I have as a senior elective this semester. Best class, we sit and enjoy some jam sessions twice a week lol.

A buddy turned me on to the blues several years ago. I can't take a steady diet of it, but have quite a bit on my memory stick and when stereo is on "random", it's nice to hear some blues. I flat out LOVE Taj Mahal as well as a lot of others mentioned so far. I tend to like country blues or accoustic blues the best.
I like Betty LaVette, Brownie McGhee, Clarence "gatemouth" Brown, Dr. John, Elvin Bishop, Eric Bibb,Jimmy Thackery, R.L. Burnside, Sonny Landreth to name a few.

For a real surprise, check out Dion...yeah that old guy from the 60's and his album "bronx in blue"

Love BB, simple chords... it's just the way he plays them.
Bobby Bland, even though all his songs have pretty much the exact same background instruments and beats.
John Mayer, More bluesy than blues, the guy can shred a guitar blues style.
Johnny Lang, None of his newer stuff though. Youtube "Johnny Lang Austin City Limits" and you will see what I am talking about.
SRV, you just gotta love some SRV.
Robert Cray, good rhythm and quality recordings.
Believe it or not... Ray Charles, listen to some of his live stuff.
For some odd reason, I can't stand Muddy Waters. Yeah I know.....

I have tons of blues on my Ipad and usually am listening to "Bluesville" on SIRIUS (Ch. 75, i believe)

Don't forget about Albert King. Some say SRV learned a lot from him.
