Just gotta love Hopkins, Chuck Berry and the Blues Brothers. I've never been a hardcore blues player but I like to sometimes take a break from Judas Priest and Motley Crue to play a Bill Withers (an absolutely great bluesman if you havnt gotten the chance to hear him) song every now and again. Like the user above me said; Theory, theory, theory. Also, don't fall into the trap that so many blues players, well most guitar players fall into. The Gear Aquisition Syndrome, I'm guilty of it too, but you gotta remember the greats of blues were mostly poor, southern, black men who didn't have a brand new Les Paul and a million effects pedals. IMHO that's why modern blues sucks.
