Anybody know any good acoustic blues albums or songs. I'm not looking for fingerstyle or slide stuff either. Think Buddy Guy - Blues Singer, KWS - Blue on Black, Hendrix - Hear My Train a Comin'. Stuff like that, played with a plectrum.

Try "Life By the Drop" from Stevie Ray Vaughan. Also, anything from Buddy Flett, but specifically "Honky Tonk" and "Run From the Levee."

Stevie Ray Vaughan Unplugged. Joe Bonamassa's Sloe Gin album has a couple acoustic songs. Other than that, you won't find much non-fingerpicked, non-slide acoustic blues




EDIT: The Beggars Banquet album by the Stones has some good tunes. Also check out Mofro. They got a bunch of tunes.

Why not anything played with fingers? It makes no difference...

AND I'm UNBANNED BITCHES.

It's good to see you again, guys. :p:

It's nothing against fingerstyle... I just don't play fingerstyle. And I've got plenty of good classic fingerstyle/slide blues in my collection. Just wondering if there is stuff out there that I am missing from this small genre. Thanks for all the recommendations peeps... btw Ball In A Biscuit isn't acoustic unless there is another version out there that I'm not aware of.

No, B&B is never played acoustic. But I don't see why you can't play a fingerstyle song with a pick, or an electric guitar song on an acoustic. It's still guitar. :confused:
That was my point.
