if you like some distortion with your blues you can look into george thorogood, he uses a slide alot.

I would also suggest George Thorogood. If you're lucky you might be able to download "Deleware Slide" on your P2P program. Or if you can find their self titled album, you can listen to the awesomeness of "Deleware Slide."

Probably the easiest slide guitar blues song I've ever heard is Eric Clapton's version of Walkin' Blues.

Derek Trucks is an amazing slide player, not exactly conventional blues, though.

Whistlin' Blues by Stefan Grossman is a nice simple one.

rory gallagher is probably the best slide player who ever lived, imo. many of his songs use slide, but, leaving town blues, i wonder who, out of my mind, tattoo'd lady are great songs by him. also, check out ry cooder. not blues as such, but still worth a listen ;). and clapton is pretty good, for the more basic side of slide playing ;).

There hasnt been a mention yet of the mighty Duane Allman. Very talented slide player and one of the best guitarists off all time.

I like Ry Cooder. He's smooth man.
Eric Sardinas is also cool, if you're into modern heavier blues.
Ron Wood's stuff is cool.
