why no blues gen?
any one got any cool charts to share, want to get into blues more seriously and would like to know where to start.
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.

>he must be old
Are fans of Beethoven hundreds of years old? Are we surrounded by art music loving vampires?
Fuck outta here
Second generation blues guitarist reporting. Here's Son house playing my father's national. He used to play with hound dog Taylor as well.
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
Thanks. Muddy Waters played this one when he came through town in the 70s.
I'm going through a big box of pictures atm. Will post anything interesting I find.
Heres Luther Johnsons SG when we had it. We kept the old rusty strings he had played on it.
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
Look up the classics and masters:
Bo Diddley (on the rock end)
Chuck Berry (yes, really)
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.
How is this not on the blues recommendation infographic?
This is perhaps the best stuff Otis Rush has ever done.
Looks like a rerelease. Not his best work, but that photo doe.
