So I thought why not make an intro thread, cause people tend to migrate over here from the pit, or so I've noticed. Just thought this might be a nice thread to have. So I guess I'll start with myself eh?

I'm coming out of the pit, hopefully be spending my time here and stay away from everyone trying to get "epic lulz" =P. I'm a big blues and blues rock fan, and I recently am trying some more blues rock (Could only really play blues before. =P) and I guess I'm looking forward to getting more acquainted with you guys. It's definitely a more....friendly atmosphere then the pit.

Hey, i'm Neil.

http://i25.tinypic.com/k33dde.jpg

I love blues and jazz. I migrated from the pit because i got bored of the "ive got cancer - but that's based on nothing in particular" threads, and was amazed to see that there are some jazz fans on UG. I know lots about jazz, so if you have a questions, or just want a chat, im your guy! I'm pretty knowledgeable about blues, so i can hold my own in a discussion!

I'm a regular here, so you'll learn to love me eventually!

See you around

Oh man I love these threads where you can freely promote yourself without looking like an ass!

I am Tim, I like blues and Telecaters. I DIDN'T migrate from the pit, only even been in there about 5 times. I'd rather talk about blues/guitars/gear than actually play most of the time, but I try my best to play a little and learn ****. Mainly playing acoustic since I've just recently delved into that realm, been playing electric guitar for over 10 years though.

Anyone who wants to talk to me may feel free to add me on MSN because I'm always bored as **** and don't have any cool friends to talk about blues with! My email is on my profile!

Hey I'm Eric, but most just call me GD around here. I love all kinds of blues, and play a mostly electric, Texas blues style. I've been a big blues fan for about 3 years now, and I'm not looking back.

Well I did not migrate from the Pit, until I found the Blues/Jazz subforum, I was a floater, I just looked at the New Posts thing :haha

But I visit the pit occassionally to read and laugh, I never post in there.

Around here I run the blues duels and stuff, once this one is done I'm thinking about doing another so just message me if you're interested.

Hmm what else? I play a Classic Player's 50's Strat (soon to have new pickups :liplick: ) and some of my favorite artists are Albert Collins, SRV, Clapton, John Mayer, Los Lonely Boys, John Mayall, Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green, and most all blues stuff like that. If you want to talk to me sometime, hit me up on AIM at Teleblues41.

I actually migrated here from the classic rock forum, and only recently became a pitmonkey :sad:

I now frequent a few different forums, and started the only thread on this website dedicated to folk music, woo!

I am a guitar noob, and I really work hard on getting better everyday, because I love music, and always have, and making it is a thousand times more fun and rewarding

hmm, my biggest influences are Freddie King and Rory Gallagher, though my guitar hero is and always has been Page

my favorite author is Douglas Adams

and My role model is Stephen Fry


oh and I am NOT and alcoholic

Hey all, I'm Sean. "I come from the land down under". I'm now in my final year of high school, and have been playing guitar for about 3 years now. I only really got into the Blues in the last year, listening to and enjoying Clapton, SRV, Buddy Guy, Albert King etc etc. I don't yet have an electric guitar, but I really want one (mum says I can't get one until after my final exams, because otherwise it will be a distraction). I do, however, own an acoustic that I jam on every day. I've never really learned a song other than those really easy three or four chord songs and Tears in Heaven. Usually my daily playing consists of technique building (chromatics and stuff) and jamming over songs.

One thing that annoys me is that nobody at my school that I know of shares the same appreciation for the blues. For instance, I wouldn't be surprised if none of my friends have ever heard of Stevie Ray Vaughan. It's sad, and I don't enjoy not being able to discuss it with people, so that's why I came to the Blues forums. I haven't been here long, but I'm already feeling at home. I also frequent the Pit for a good laugh, and the GG&A forums (because all I can do is dream about my electric :))

Orate, I'm chobe.

I've been playing about a year and 3 months - started quite late in life I suppose (i'm 23 now) but I've got the bug now and I spend a lot of my spare time playing and I love it. I have 3 acoustic guitars (1 cheap steel string, 1 good steel string and 1 fairly old and decent classical that belonged to my dad), not too bothered about electric right now.

I always liked BB King, Cream etc when I was younger but I started listening to a lot of delta when I was about 20, and that's why I started playing guitar. I listen to Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Blind Willie Johnson and all them lot mostly these days.

Peace.

Hi I'm Steve and I'm probably an alcoholic, but I prefer the term "drunkard"

I've been playing for about a year and a half now seriously. Playing guitar has inspired my musical tastes immensely, I had never even heard of the blues before I played guitar. I love playing me some blues and jazz but I'm also a big alternative fan, so that type of style has leaked into my playing. When I'm here, I typically frequent the GB&C, Blues/Jazz, and Alternative/Indie forums.

Ask me any given night who my influences are and I'll probably list whoever I'm listening to music wise. Right now, I'm on a kinda punk/blues kick with Neutral Milk Hotel, The Black Keys, The White Stripes, and other lo-fi bands.

Hi, I'm Trung and I enjoy a nice glass of wine every now and then.

Started guitar a year ago my uncle's Ovation, but didn't get serious untily about half a year ago, started getting into the blues a month later. Currently just trying to listen to all the blues I can.

Never really a big fan of The Pit, mostly hung out in the Electric Guitar and G&A sub-forums and am damn pround of being a 14 year old that can actually spell out the word "are" on the interwebz.

Only person at my school who has any real interest in the blues, so it's just me and my lonesome self. Anyone wanna talk, MSN's DeeDeeDee420@msn.com, AIM's NinjaSohei.

Salut, friends.

My name is Nick and I like to sneak a sip of mouthwash when people aren't looking.

Been playing about 4-5 years total (I started at 9 but gave up for a few years, so I count that first year). Blues/ Blues-rock is my big thing, but I'm never here much...odd. Blues like Clapton, some of the Southern stuff like The Allman Brothers, but also "old school" stuff like Elmore James and especially Howlin' Wolf. There's a whole load of people I'm missing...Captain Beefheart's early stuff that sounds more like blues than avant fart is good too (but so is the avant fart stuff :D )

Been attempting slide as well for a year or so; not much luck but I'm about 1/3 competent. Also play a teensy tiny bit of harmonica; nothing to write home about.

:cool:

I've played guitar for about 5 or 6 years and I got into the blues around 2 or 3 years ago thanks to my old guitar teacher (:heart:) I love the blues so much, my favourite genre of music to both listen to and play. Some of my main blues artists are Albert Collins, Albert King, BB King, Buddy Guy, Cream, Elmore James, Eric Clapton, Gary Moore, Howlin' Wolf, Jeff Healey, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall, John Lee Hooker, Leadbelly, Muddy Waters, Robert Cray, Robert Johnson, Rory Buchanan, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tab Benoit, T Bone Walker, and Walter Trout. Pretty much anything blues. You should feel lucky that I even alphabetized those for you ;)

Let me list all my gear for you:
Fender: American Stratocaster, Fender: Hot Rod Deluxe, ESP: LTD EC 1000 w/ Seymour Duncans, Ibanez: TS9 Tube Screamer, Vox: V847 Wah, Line 6: Uber Metal, Fender: CD-100/12 NAT, Simon & Patrick: Woodland CW Cedar GT A 3.2, Boss: SD-1, Boss: AC-2, Boss: GE-7, Boss: DD-3, Boss: CE-5, Boss: TU-2. Marshall: 1965A 4x10 Cabnet, Maxon: OD808

But my main gear is my American Stratocaster, Hot Rod Deluxe, Marshall Cab, Maxon OD 808 and Tube Screamer.

Hi, I'm Willie and I hate wearing shoes and I'm a Dr.Pepperaholic. The trash can next to me is mounded with empty cans. I spent time in the south (Mississippi and Texas) as a youth. There I listened to Mississippi Fred Mc Dowell and T-bone Walker. Then came Clapton, Hendrix, and King (Albert). Peter Green, John Mayall, David Gilmor, and the Stones led me back to the roots. Son House, Howling Wolf, Muddy Water and others. Most recently I have been listening to John Hammond and Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. I slithered thur "the pit" a couple of times but found no reason to stay. I wander thru here regularly. I spend part of my free time building hand wired tube amps with tone reminiscent of early fenders. (I made the one in my profile.)

Hey I have seen this thread a lot but never ventured into it, it's cooler than I figured.

I am Amos, or call me my username it doesn't matter. I have never really had a drink but do not be afraid, for I am not one of those self-righteous types. I got pretty into blues a year or two ago, I like lots of different music, but nothing can beat a slow blues.

I am going to be in my schools jazz band next year so I am trying to learn some jazz theory and stuff.

My favorite players (blues-wise) are BB King, Rev. Gary Davis, SRV, Buddy Guy, and many more cliches.

I still post in the pit quite a bit, but I do feel remorse every time I do for this forum is the best.

I post there some but have decided to get away from it, its bad for your health.
I was raised on Led Zeppelin, The stones, ZZ top, and Jimi. When I got older and picked up the guitar, I realized that what I loved so much about this music was the blues roots. I was also brought up on southern gospel (the kind that makes old ladies shout) and Johnny Cash.

I've been hooked on the blues ever since. It's my favorite genre. Hendrix is my hero (I prefer his blues stuff). I like any kind of blues, especially juke joint like RL burnside.

I will admit, I'm southern as all get out, born and bred in the sticks. So go ahead and make fun if you'd like. Just keep in mind I'm not retarded, please.

Strange kinda question, but I'm not from America and I know no black people who even know what blues is, but I read that in the south, lots of coloured folks try to say that blues didn't exist as a way of kinda...forgetting. Is this true?

Weeelll, I certainly haven't heard that. I go to a mom and pop guitar shop here in town a lot to hang out with some older people who are pretty good at guitar. One guy is an old black man who is ALWAYS there playing a Jack Daniels acoustic guitar. He's always playin the blues and will jam with ya.

There aren't a whole lot of people, white or black, that still listen to the blues, sadly. There are some though, quite a few black people I know do like Jimi Hendrix and a lot of soul stuff. There are a few that like the blues but not many.



edit: Dont feel bad your borrowing music. Bluesmen sing each others songs all the time and used a lot of the same progressions and such in music. No big deal. If yer blue, yer blue, if ya aint, ya aint.

If anyone has any other questions about southerness, I will do my best to answer while eating cornbread, drinking sweet tea, and spittin my chaw. :cool:

Well, blues is part of black american history. You can't just ignore that it ever happened. I also think that the blues is historically important, as it allows us to see how life was back then! But here in england, black people don't know what blues is, although neither do many other people. Some people could name Eric Clapton as a blues musician, but that would be it.

I understand what you mean about borrowing music. But todays music is made on computers, and is meaningless (in my opinion). Also, with the availability of world music, it is so easy to "borrow" another culture's music. For example, im a Latin blues/jazz fan, and its easy to find new music. This is why i love the digital age of music (theres also the torrents, but the less i say about that, the better!), and i don't feel conscious about it.

But saying that, if i was listening to gangsta rap, i might feel a bit conscious about it, because it has no relevance to me or my culture. Saying that, 1920's Mississippi delta blues has nothing to do my me or my culture, but i appreciate good music, so im not conscious abut borrowing the music from another culture.

GD_GC
03-29-2008, 12:18 PM
I think that music borrowing is what drives music to keep evolving and getting better. If we didn't borrow music from other people, then music couldn't exist. What if the first guy to play a 12 bar blues didn't let anyone else borrow it? What if the first guy to crank a tube amp and hit that low E power chord didn't let anyone borrow that? What if there was a copy right on the blues scale? We borrow other's musical ideas, and that is how we make and develop our own music.

theneildeal
03-29-2008, 12:24 PM
Yeah exactly. Using Guitar Pro helps me to experiment with different cultures. It has a long list of scales, including the Jewish scale, Hawaiian scale, Javanese scale etc, and its always good to do a jam in one of those.

I didn't mean so much as borrowing scales and things musically, but their music, and in a certain way, their life style which in a certain part of me makes me almost think that it's like I'm making a mockery of it.

I'm kid that's got a lot more than Son House or Blind Willie Johnson could ever dream of, and it makes me have incredible respect for them. I mean, I pretty much got everything I ever wanted I guess, and they share cropped or worked in a factory or played on a street corner for most of their life. I think it allows a certain amount of gratefulness and a hell of a lot of hope, to me anyway. :)

I think the last part is the more important part and the part I focus on a lot.

Yeah, I feel the same. I'm a white kid living in upper middle class suburbia, what gives me the right to play the blues? These guys had nothing, and yeah that really makes me respect them even more. But at the same time, it gives you kind of a "why the hell should I be able to play this music" feeling, at least for me. But anyone can do it, I think the blues is being able to take your own problems, no matter how big or small, and turn them into emotion in the form of the music. So I think anyone has the right to play the blues, no matter what kind of problems you have to deal with in life.

Man, the Blues is American as apple pie. Like steve said, few people listen to it, but a lot of people know it and respect it.

This is coming from a Black man too. My best friends are into the blues. Most every black person I know is into Rhythm and Blues. The Black American is intrinsically tied to the blues because Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and the rest are just as much part of our culture and roots as Malcolm X or Booker T. Washington.

That said, a bunch of black people like the blues and don't know it. Like I know a bunch of people who really dig into Mos Def's New Danger album, but they can't id what it is that makes it unique from all the crap rap. That uniqueness comes from the blues. Common's albums and The Tribe Called Quest's albums use Jazz beats on nearly EVERY song. The swing and boogie rhythm are in EVERY hip hop and R&B song that is put out.

I listen to a ton of music, and the reality is that EVERY form of music made after the blues takes from the blues, from metal to rap. Every form. So I would say, as long as you play the blues, feel the blues, and respect the roots, it don't matter what people say.

That's too funny. I mean it may be that way today but most white middle class Americans wouldn't know much about the blues if not for Brits like EC, Alvin Lee, Jeff Beck, Rory Gallagher (OK he's Irish) Peter Green, Keith Richards and tons of others.

As i sit hear and read all this, it makes me happy to see people discuss topics in a civil manner (unlike the pit). I know I've said something like that already but I still want to thank you all.

Now, I do PARTIALLY know what these old guys are singing about. I have farmed (we ate what we grew, also raised cattle), my family was once not financially well (not in poverty though), and I am from the south ( my family is from the "countriest" place on earth).

I've also got a few mental illnesses, and I get morbidly depressed a few times a month (i have 3 shrinks). The way I USED TO see it a few years ago, was "damn look at me, the only thing I'm missing is black skin"

But, as I got deeper into it, I realized none of that matters. Everyone has problems, if you have problems, and want to sing the blues, you can, even if you are from china. :: imagines eating in a chineese rest. while man sings the blues in chineese::

It's all about soul, thats what I love about this music. You make your guitar say what your mouth can't and vice-versa. How much soul do you have?

That's a part of the blues too; you have a problem, but it's your problem and it's not the biggest problem in the history of humanity. They had a lot of humor in the lyrics, if you look close enough. But still a lot of emotion.

Can I jam with you guys? As much as I like the Texas blues, I like other stuff better.
I'll be Chicagoing anyway, I don't accept the idea of "Texas blues." Leadbelly and Blind Lemon are fine, but I don't go for SRV or The Fabulous T Birds.

well I'll be playing my incredible(ly bad) slide guitar (might foray into some slide metal) so I fit in anywhere. Maybe blow some harp too.

As far as Texas blues goes though, I have to go with Johnny Winter and ZZ Top(the older stuff) over SRV

I like Lightin' Hopkins a lot but everyone else pales in comparison. My favorites overall are Howlin' Wolf and Robert Johnson (and Elmore James now that you mention slide).

I'd like to join too!


I like big Rhythm and Blues bands like B.B.s, because horns are amazing, so I'll be trying (and failing) to play like B.B.

I hate ZZ top for the pure and simple fact that they are more of a novelty than a band now thanks to their epic sell out during the 80's

their early stuff (before they started using digital drum tracks :p: ) is good, I have the fandango album, its pretty good

but I'd take SRV over gibbons or Winter any day,

I straight-up dislike SRV, I just don't go for the dude at all.

As a guitar player I take SRV over almost anyone, but his songs kinda sound alike sometimes. Yeah, maybe I was a little hasty saying that I like JW and ZZ Top over him, maybe just exaggerating, but still. I am more of a John Lee, Junior Kimbrough, Howlin Wolf type guy anyway.

@ nick, that is fine, everyone here has different taste


it would be hard to come up with a word for the type of blues I'd like to play

its not the heavy drinking I just killed a man type blues, it's... once again I guess quite like B.B.'s approach, it's classy, very jazz influenced, and mostly laid back

Biased, you are biased against the Pit!

J'accuse!

It's really not that bad. Those that blast the Pit have never been in long enough to get over the "lol religon sux?" and "Poll: How long are your fingernails?" threads. Give it a chance; I'm a regular Pit monkey and I'm civilized enough to speak in the Blues/Jazz forum.


And the Blues room would actually be an old Mississippi bar with Robert Johnson playing non-stop. And it would change with your preferences; one for Chicago, Memphis, etc (but no Texas :mad: )

I like the pit, it's just a different, unforgiving environment.

We are a very loving forgiving group in the Pit. Come visit us. We need some fresh meat.

Hey guys. I spend a lot of my UG time in the Classic Rock forum, but I've been here more and more lately thanks to my love for the blues.

I'm Mike, I didn't come from the Pit, I'm not an alcoholic, I dig Strats and SGs and if I don't have an old Twin Reverb by the end of the summer I'll be a sad man.

I'm Drew, I've recently been starting to frequent the Blues forum, and It seems like a great place. I love all kinds of blues, but mostly like to play acoustic slide.

Also, in sticking with the theme, I am only an alcoholic on days that end in Y.

Not really sure if I did one of these already, so I'll introduce myself, wouldn't like to be impolite.

My name is D. and yes, I'm an alcoholic. I basically don't visit any other part of the forum, so no, I didn't come from the Pit, don't even know what goes on there, and I'm not sure I wanna know.

I like this part of UG since it's probably the only place on these forums where relatively normal conversations take place, there's a touch of tolerance which is always good, and you can write sentences without numbers instead of letters and every word finishing with a 'Z'. Been a blues enthusiast for a couple of years now, but still consider myself to be just a beginner, like to do my stuff thoroughly. I'm into jazz too, also got into it recently and still learning.

Misc - Like Strats. Like beer. Like fingerstyle. Like Irish music and Irish beer. ( in no particular order ) Not a teenager.

Nuff said. Cheers!
