Just standards maybe? Like Crossroads, Born Under a Bad Sign, etc. Thats all that comes to mind right now, but what are some songs that somebody should be familiar with and know how to play? Does the question make sense?

:cheers: and thanks in advance!

EDIT: yea, just like covers, blues standards, and riffs are awesome too. :cheers:

From Texas Flood.

Crap I just noticed that I wrote it in D. In Texas Flood it's in G.

And you have to know the I - IV - V progression, and the Little Wing intro.

I have a Jimi Hendrix blues album that has a cover of Born Under a Bad Sign that is awesome. It's real dirty and gritty, just completely raw and rough. I love it.
