What are the basic "standard" blues songs you should know how to play? I'm not asking how to play blues, im asking for songs. Like, let me see, i dont really know. Just the old blues songs that everyone knows. Songs you see every blues artist cover. I hope im making sense. do i need to try and re-explain?

Ya Hendrix has some nice tunes out there. Also, it would be nice to know the 12 bar blues progression so that later on you can solo over top of that.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.
