Buddy Guy and Ray Charles.

And Mary Had a Little Lamb is a 12 bar song. So is that BB King song.

Also: Junior Wells, Earl Hooker, Magic Sam, Ry Cooder, Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, and Jimmy Rogers are worth checking out.

Key to the Highway is an 8 bar blues I think.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

I think Sittin of the World is a 9 bar song.

Pwned.

BB King, Freddie King and Buddy Guy are perfect for what you want IMO. Check out Eric Clapton's blues stuff, John Mayer's Bluesbreakers, and Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.

A bit off topic, but I love that vid.


Peter Green is great, and I think you meant John Mayall

Typo. And I had just been listening to Belief by John Mayer.
