Do You Dig The Blues?Page 3 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
I can't play the blues cause I'm too happy heheh
I really like the way the blues came out back in the day. Seemed the way blues of the past was played out then was it came from a genuine spot, alot of creativity, low budget and great raw tones. Then I watch some blues of "today" trying to get a message across in a song using the best expensive sophisticated music equipment and you think yeh ok lol! thats having the blues?!
Mind you blues is yinyang to like were having a good time as well and it sounds like this. I also like the honky tonk piano stuff like Ray Charles did and alike. SRV had some fun shuffles to with his beefed up texan riffery with hendrix, king influence.

I'm a big fan of the blues. Strangely I've only heard of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Elmore James off your list.

I'm a big big fan of Tom Waits (ok, Jazz/Blues) and what I like to call "dirty blues" (ie: Black Snake Moan Soundtrack). I actually think Samuel L Jackson did a bang up job in that movie and should release an album

If Blues is not American then where did it come from, well you could say Africa, or Africian American, NOpe ITS AMERICAN, And where the **** did jazz come from, The ****ing blues Brother,(not the band) dont forget it, and no the blues doesnt consist of five notes, any idiot can play those notes,but i goes way deeper than notes. Its the real soul music.

I've been getting more into blues music lately. I'll admit I lead more towards the blues rock side than te traditional blues, but I still love guys like Muddy, Buddy, and King. Most of the music I really dig has a solid bluesy influence. From harder bands like AC/DC and ZZ Top to more R&B influenced groups like the Black Crowes, and The Rolling Stones I tend to gravitate towards the blues sound. Some of my favorite musicians are guys like SRV, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Jeff Healey(R.I.P.), and a blues rocker from my neck of the woods in Canada, Colin James.

Basically, I dabble in all genres but I always come back to the blues.

And thus ends my pointless rambling.

P.S. - For those who haven't seen it yet, Buddy Guy's performance with the Stones in the new Doc/concert film "Shine A Light" is worth the price of admission by itself.

Blues lovers have the right idea! I can't play any instument, but I can definitely appreciate the music. To me the Blues is on a much more desirable level than most music. The Blues has a unique, secret way of capturing the raw emotion of those performing. Some of my favorites include (but aren't limited to) Lightnin' Hopkins, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Hound Dog Taylor, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, Charlie Parker, and Memphis Slim. Don't forget about Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and George Thorogood. It is all just fantastic music that everyone should give a listen to , at least once.

Oh yeah baby! I luv the blues. In fact, I just attended the 22nd annual Carolina Blues Festival in beautiful downtown Greensboro, NC today. Needless to say, it rocked my face off!!! All those old school blues guys are awesome, that's what got me hooked on the blues.

Echo Cateye's choice.

Has anyone heard the Saffire Blues Band.? Absolutely hilarioius.

There's a CD - Lightning Blues, which has a lot of the greats on it. The concert was recorded, shown at some places and is a double set. Macy Gray does a good 'Nothin' but a Houndog' on it.

Crazy about the blues - in fact listening to some now!

I love blues. As a matter of fact I'm volunteering at the Ottawa Blues Fest this year. 6 four hour shifts = free entry into the full two week event. Largest bluesfest in Canada. 6 Stages wide variety of music so you can get your kids out as well. I won free tickets to attend the full event last year and I enjoyed it so much I'll probably volunteer every year to get in for free. Some of the bands I like: Elmer Ferrer Band, Dave Maxwell, The White Stripes, Rober Cray, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Todd Snider, Here's a link to the website....check out the list of performers for this year....quite impressive. http://www.ottawa-bluesfest.ca/en/ Buddy Guy played there last year. Always a good line up and a good variety to allow you to bring your kids and then possibly convert them...lol. Last year I went to some of the shows they liked but I made them come to some of mine so as to eliminate a lot of back and forth trips. They ended up liking some of the blues bands I listened to in the end.

the experts say if it wasnt for robert johnson you would not have all these rock bands and such. he was the ambassador for what was to come. i also dig john lee hooker, bb king, STEVIE RAY VAUGHN, joe walsh, eric clapton, yngwie malmsteen actually has some nice blues pieces. its weird becuase "blues" and "jazz" are kinda the same thing. brother and sister. john coltrane, john scofield. love it! nothing like it in the world. its the roots of all music today. of course you have classical as well. but only a certain few claim that classical is truly the roots. all in your opinion i suppose.

The blues kind of hits me like a life force. The radio can be playing away, but if a blues tune comes on, it's like somebody plugged me into a socket. Can't say what it is, but those minor chords just speak to me.

There's been a lot of great artists already listed. I'll throw a couple of my local favorites into the mix with Johnny Basset and Greg "Fingers" Taylor. Some of those a little more widely known are Ken Saydak and of course Taj Mahal.

Yeah, Blues is just a voice or guitar anything to make expression. Take Robert Johnson or Muddy waters over intellectual music like Bob Dylan. Blues is something that is felt if you play it, sing it, feel it. The blue masters from the Mississippi brought music to the masses as did the country boys in Applachia. Give me Robert Johnson and Hollin Wolf over Bob Dylan and Pantera anyday.
