Okay, you seem to be genuinely into this so I'll give some lists I used when I was getting to blues. The /mu/ chart is shit. Throwing in some country lists too, since odds are if you like blues you'll like most country.

Are fans of Beethoven hundreds of years old? Are we surrounded by art music loving vampires?

Second generation blues guitarist reporting. Here's Son house playing my father's national. He used to play with hound dog Taylor as well.

People like this need to listen to Albert King: born under a bad sign

My fav artists are bo diddley, muddy waters and Rorry Gallagher

Have you ever met a black guy listening to blues? I always thought it is a whiteboy thing nowadays

What are your favourite subgenres?
Mine: deltablues, sahara blues and sahara blues

This is one of two blown up photographs that Son House signed for my father and his friend. They were all shitfaced. Son signed the first one 'son house blues king'. He signed this one 'son house blouse' because they had been joking around about his silk shirt. Too bad about the water damage

To start:
Look up the classics and masters:
Muddy Waters
Howlin' Wolf
Jimmy Reed
Junior Wells
Little Walter
B.B. King
Albert King
Freddie King
Bo Diddley (on the rock end)
Chuck Berry (yes, really)
Charley Patton
Robert Johnson
Son House
Bessie Smith
Albert Collins
Lightnin' Hopkins
John Lee Hooker

Those people have all produced multiple classic blues sides. Some of them-like Robert Johnson-have their whole recorded catalog classified as "classic" now.
There's also dozens of lesser artists that are good to know as well, but you can find them later. Everyone has to start somewhere, and the above list is a great place to start.

Anybody have some Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee?
