Great list, and add Charley Patton, Blind Willie Johnson and Tommy McClennan to the list of acoustic blues.

Dont forget good old John lee Hooker for acoustic blues and electric, also missispispiipipspipsspi fred mcdowell is an awesome delta blues slide guitarist. Lightnin hopkins played a lot of blues on his electro acoustic, personally i think he did the best version of 'baby please dont go'

I would have to suggest Clapton, the 3 kings (BB King, Freddie King, and Albert King), Buddy Guy, and Stevie Ray Vaughan

Listen to some John Mayer too

and if you wanna get into the roots of blues listen to Robert Johnson, also Otis Rush from the fifties

i dont know much of jazz but those artists are a good place to get into the blues

Feelin the Blues


"The Blues are a simple music and I'm a simple man. But the Blues aren't a science, the Blues can't be broken down like a mathematics. The Blues are a mystery, and mysteries are never as simple as they look" - BB King
