I recently discovered blues music, and obviously i want to build some chops in blues guitar, so can anyone recommend me some songs to learn. Nothing too simple. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, uh, BB King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Robert Johnson, Clapton, Hendrix, all artists to check out.
