Ive never been in here before, but I am looking for a certain type of blues. I dont know if it has a certain name or classification. Im looking for something like Red House by Jimi Hendrix or Since Ive Been Loving You by Led Zeppelin. Guitar oriented blues music with alot of passion.
EDIT: also, Im looking for intrumentals in this style.

If you like that stuff, try some other blues artists also.
Pre War Blues/Very Raw: (not recommended for a new blues listener.)
Blind Lemon Jefferson
Delta Blues: (maybe listen to these guys once you start getting into blues more)
Big Bill Broonzy
Mississippi Fred McDowell
John Lee Hooker
Sonny Boy Williamson
Paul Butterfield Blues Band
Stevie Ray Vaughn
And All Great other Blues Players:
Doyle Braham II
Derek Trucks Band
All those people are really good. :cheers:

Check out some Roy Buchanan, he has a lot of great instrumentals and slow blues.. Try songs like 'The messiah will come again' , 'Black autumn' , 'Fly... Night Bird' , 'after hours' for instrumentals. Probably forgotten some stil..
If you want really fancy guitar playing though probably check out some Gary Moore aswell just make sure you get his blues stuff, not his shreddy stuff. Good album to start with is "Still got the blues"
