Create an account at pandora, and make a BB King station.

But if you don't wanna do that BB King is good... fer now

Oh wait you said acoustic, Son House is the only thing i can think of, it's way old school I believe

anyway

SRV, as I'm sure you know, did an acoustic set on MTV Unplugged that was really cool. Other than that, just give some of your favorite tunes a shot on the acoustic. It just might work out, because after all, electric blues could almost be played just guitar and be interesting because of how rhythmic it is, so it should work for an acoustic as well.

Robert Johnson ftw.

Usually if they have a "blind" in their name, they play acoustic blues. Like Blind Willie Johnson
John Lee Hooker has some great acoustic blues.

Good list.


Add Missisipi John Hurt. He's more fingerstyle though, than straight delta blues.
