Catfish blues the muddy waters version or hendrix one


This, but also throw Rory Gallagher's version of Catfish blues in there too!

Also "Sugar Mama", the Taste/Rory G version.

There's rarely anything creative about blues. Everyone rips off eachother's riffs that's what blues is all about

No, i_killed_bill, the blues is not about ripping people off, the blues is about simplicity, and when something is simple you can only go so far. Everyone learns their favorite licks from their idols, but in failing to recreate their style, they create their own. That's how it's worked for generations and that's how it will continue. The blues is a family tree, that doesn't mean that nothing is created, and to be honest a hell of a lot has been done with three chords and a 5 note scale.

Blues is not the only genre that has this trait and it upsets me when people state so.

Yes, SlinkyBlue, I realize that. My post was sarcasm...

Edit: Well, not technically sarcasm but either way my post was a joke not to be taken seriously.

actually to be fair that video isnt entirely accurate, Pachelbel's Cannon came before any of that music in the video there... I know this is a comedy act, however, it shows the correlation between cannon and todays music
