Cocaine Blues by Rev. Gary Davis is pretty cool

Steady Rollin Man by Robert Johnson, uses that Long A

Once you learn the different positions of each chord and you know your pentatonic/blues/major scale blues positions you can just mix them all together and make up your own stuff as long as you know the 1-4-5 stuff and where the changes are

the man john lee hooker comes to mind, even most of his electric stuff would be good

that adam rafferty video is pretty good, I'd even call it toe-tappin good
