Would someone please suggest some minor delta blues for a solo acoustic guitar? Doesn't need to be anything special, just really sad. Not angry or in a "I don't care" way the blues sometimes gets....
John Lee Hooker - Tupelo

One chord, Eminor.

then there's these ones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nxy5KVoMbx0

Although a lot of blues is kind of a mix of major and minor. Like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGRqSJY0hDo which doesn't sound very happy at all.

This one is all minor i think though http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtZ6DoeimP4

various others





I think this is technically major, or major and minor as a lot of blues seems to be, but its a very sad song anyway so im posting it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTEfNLAzXEI

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga3E-70u4g0&feature=related (dunno where you'd class willie dixon as 'delta blues' or not, but i think he did so much blues of all kinds anyway he deserves a mention)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCF3cjRK98M&feature=related Might aswell post this one too

Zoot you are my hero, thank you. I am always open to any suggestions.

Thanks, there's a bunch more i'll edit into my post. Some aren't strictly 'delta blues' as such really but i think there's enough stuff in there worth listening to regardless. Not that many people are aware of the lesser known players so i thought i should post some of that.
