I agree. When JM isn't being a dink and actually plays the blues he is pretty good.

I saw B.B. King live a couple years ago. His music goes right through you. Powerful stuff.

Yea. I went to Crossroads Festival in 2010, and he was there at the very end. One of the best days of my life.

John Mayer is actually a massive troll as far as the music world goes.

John Mayer Trio all day long though. Steve Jordan is a goddamn monster.

And Pino Palladino is just Pino Palladino. Groovy as ****.

there's no such thing as a 'great bluesman', it's a ridiculously easy genre to play. babby's first pentatonic shapes.

The blues are relatively easy to play. What makes blues challenging is when you can keep it interesting and meaningful.

I think what separates a great blues player from an average are the feelings and emotions that come out through the playing.

Some of the all time greatest legends really felt what they were playing. When you see SRV do his warrior scream and head into a solo, just watch his face and you can really feel it. And when B.B. King closes his eyes and solos, you know he is lost in his own world.

Blues is a music genre built on emotion, thats what makes it special to me.

I absolutely love blues dancing to this song:

The blues started out as dance music and was influenced by work songs, so harmonic complexity and such wasn't the focus of the music.

This song doesn't even have the 12 bar blues chord changes but it's still awesome. So y'all learn how to blues dance and gain a new appreciation for music.

After I heard Eddie Hazel's Maggot Brain, every other blues jam seemed trite to me. That one directly connects to my heart for some reason. I've been working on a tribute for months and it never feels right. No one can ever top it as far as I'm concerned. John Frusciante did a tribute on one of his records, it's okay, but it doesn't have the same power.

I'm a fan of the regular old hobo blues. John Lee Hurt, especially.

Also Gary Moore.

The people who think blues is an 'easy' or boring genre, probably all think they could all give it a good go, and I bet they would all fucking suck at it
