I`m probably going to get flamed but, can people recomend me to some great blues ( songs and or artists )? I know most of Hendrix`s stuff and some Clapton but need some help when coming to BB King and Stevie Ray ( in choosing some of there songs ).

Naw, everything those four men created was solid Blues. They had it deep down in their souls.

Just look them up, listen to them, and STFU.

Just buy an album, have a listen, watch a few vids and make your own judgement. It's not good to be force fed music.

I'd say check out the roots of blues, don't just stick to Electric Blues either. They all rock, but its nice to hear where it all came from.

Yeah, I was gonna ramble off a list of delta blues players but thought it's best not to.

just buy an album. you'll never get into a certain type of music if you only buy individual songs.

+1 yer i think if you really want to appreciate the artist fully you have to buy the album to see a range of their ability. so i suggest you go to the search bar and find a thread where someones asked about good blues artists, then look them up and find a few you like and go buy a few albums. :)
