Stevie Ray Vaughan is the perfect guy for blues.

EDIT: Hendrix has tons of awesome blues stuff too.

The list steve provided is great, also if you want a more modern blues song "Death Letter" by The White Stripes is a great song.

Agreed. I forgot about the Stripes. The Black Keys is worth mentioning too.

I say Buddy Guy is my favorite blues guitarist. And i used to be into the same music as you. Buddy Guy changed my guitar playing.

Stevie Ray Vaughn - Pride and Joy.

That's energy.


Oh I love that song.

Also, I didnt mention this guy before but John Mayer has some really good blues stuff out there. Sure all of the shit he releases is poppy, but thats because the radio likes those shit songs. So check out one of his cds. Either Try! by John Mayer Trio, or As/Is which is a solo one. Those are both live albums, which means it really captures those great blues solos.

You are a very deprived child if you have never heard the blues

Anyways, like others have said get some SRV, Hendrix, Clapton, or even the Rolling Stones

Once you have listened to those artist,you and a friend learn the 12 bar blues progession and take turns improvising.
