Anyone know of any good electric blues songs to imrov arouns, to help me imrpove my improvisation skills? Im looking for bluesy stuf in the style of Eric Clapton, BB King, SRV, and Johnny Lang. That type of blues. Any suggestions?

Joe Bonamassa is a great player. Albert King. GARY MOORE FOR SURE!!! Gary is a sick blues player.

If you wanna try something cool, play the music to SRV's Crossfire, but sing the lyrics to Rufus Thomas' Walking The Dog, they go together great

Buddy Guy, one of the first and best blues players. I think you answered your own question. Check your influences and see who their influences were and keep working like that.
Some of the most powerful moments are when there is nothing to be said

This is gonna sound completely n00bish, but I had no idea that Kenny Wayne Sheppard sang the song "Blue on Black". I love that song and have been searching for tabs for it for awhile. Thanks for throwing his name out there for me guys.

Gary Moore is like the perfect mix of technique and feel. He can shred when he wants, still I never heard a player with so much soul as Gary Moore.

well if you want to improv you can always make up a blues riff, maybe just a simple 1-4-5 riff, and jam over that

or if you wanted to go an extra step you could record on your computer then play along to it
gear:
fender mim telecaster w/ some extra stuff
Vox Ad50vt
Vox V847 Wah
Boss OS-2
Keeley Boss DS-1 Ultra
Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi USA
MXR Phase 90
Boss CH-1

Gary Moore is one of my favorites. What really got me into enjoying blues guitar was Albert King.
