I have been getting into blues lately and want to know if anyone can recommend me some songs to learn, preferably on acoustic. I like slow, easy goin , laid back bluesy tunes. Slide songs are welcome also.

:cheers:

EC's Layla is a fairly laid back, fun song to play on acoustic (the acoustic version of course, not the Derek and the Dominoes version). Come on in My Kitchen by Robert Johnson is a slide track that is also relatively laid back.

Dark was the Night (Cold was the Ground) is my favorite slide song of all time. You should play that.

Life by the Drop - SRV, if you want a generic slow 12 bar blues

I think that's a quick change song, in 4/4, if I'm not mistaken. Slow blues is generally written in 12/8.

'Without You' by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac is a superb 12 bar slow blues. Fun to play!

Try playing some R.L. Burnside, like Bad Luck and Trouble, or Lost Without Your Love.
