Ive been playing for a little more than 2 years and i wanted to start building my skill in playing blues riffs can i get like a list of 5 good ones. and songs included would be greatly apriciated. nothing too complicated though i just want to learn alot of there styles. I plan to maybe take like a half hour of my current 3 hour a day practicing schedule. pls no Jimmy though. thats rock imo. i mean true blues players.

Definitely check out some BB King. His stuff is quite simple but still sounds so great.

Well obviously SRV. But some of my favorites are Albert Collins (very unique sound), Clapton (if you get into his blues stuff), Peter Green (try '60s Fleetwood Mac, which is actually blues, belive it or not), Robert Cray, Buddy Guy (Amazing!), and of course the king of blues, B.B.

That's just a list to get you started, happy bluesing!
