All the best blues guitarists make but ugly faces...emotion is exactly that which causes beautiful people to throw down their guard and let their feelings flow through the music. Ugly = beautifulI can't do the favorites thing. It's an impossible question for me.
It has to have emotion though, like Freddy King does here
Is it me? I could not watch that lip synch of 'Wolf. I don't care what kind of bad ass the actor is, nobody can hold a candle to Howlin' Wolf. He scares the devil
Countless songs with 'Blues' in the title, many have been covered numerous times by different artists.
Here are some of my favourites in no particular order:
Deacon Blues - Steely Dan
Travelling Riverside Blues - Zeppelin
Summertime Blues - Eddie Cochran
Bell Bottom Blues - Derek & the Dominos
Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash
Georgia Blues - Jimi Hendrix
What are some of your favourites?
