So what's a song that everyone knows? Your typical blues song that even someone who didn't even know who it was by, could hum along to.

I'm just looking for some bluesy songs to learn that everyone knows.

Learn a load of Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry and you should be set. Plus both usually use the same song structure over and over so it should be easy.

they'll be 1-4-5's mostly but very different styles if you're going to do the artists any justice ;P

lolz at mainstream blues? I dunno..

Rollin Stone? aka catfish blues, not sure if people know the lyrics but its responsible for the rolling stones name and subsequent magazine name

Oh and you can just pick a chord or two and play those using the Bo Diddley beat and if your band mates know **** they'll pick it up.
