I have been listneing to metallica, AC/DC, Pantera, Van Halen, black sabbath, and a lot of rock and metal type stuff. But the more blues and jazz I listen to on the guitar the more I like it.

But the problem is. I dont know any blues or jazz songs or artist. Could anyone point me in the right direction of some songs to play and what to learn.

Thanks

There's some good suggestions in the Blues and Jazz forum.

I'd say BB King above all others.

Never, ever, would I recommend SRV.

out of sheer curiosity, why wouldn't you recommend SRV?

Probably because his stuff is pretty hard to play when you are learning? I am not sure, just guessing.

Stevie Ray Vaughan.. his playing should definitely be recommended to any one who is interested in the blues genre.

Jimi Hendrix, as far as his blues playing is concerned. It was crazy how versatile he was.

Django Reinhardt, Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, John Lee Hooker
