Im currently embroiled in a group project based around the topic in the title above. We've gotten quite a ways through, but we're still kind of short on information through conventional sources.

Anyone willing to share their wisdom on the topic?
well, if you go back to the roots of the blues (eg Robert Johnson) and compare those techniques with, say, Gary Moore or Led Zeppelin, you'd have a lot to talk about.

My life in all aspects is going fucking brilliantly, so I just thought I'd offer a cyncial scrap of wisdom, gloat a little, and then leave.
It's just not technique either. Differences in technology, the guitar and its functions with the strucutre of the song, etc.
well, maybe talk about the slide in delta blues, versus lack of in most rock? but how the licks evolved between the two?
