R.L. Burnside, Johnny Winter, I would certainly count Keef.
Susan Tedeschi, Sue Foley, Joanne Shaw Taylor ...
Hey, they're all women too!
Susan Tedeschi was mentioned in the original post ...
And expanded upon in mine. Thanks for your contribution.
Well, I did contribute: Bloomfield and EC!
Mentioned in a previous post. Keep it moving.
I saw a concert where Buddy Guy did quite a few songs using a Tele Deluxe (the one with two Full range humbuckers in it).
Bloomfield used a Tele exclusively on Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited." And when Dylan went electric too:
Kenny Neal, Sean Costello, Jimmy Vaughan back in the day, Johnny Guitar Watson used a tele (maybe an esquire) on many of his 50s recordings. If you are going to call Keith Richards a blues player, then you must certainly include Steve Cropper.
well, there's this guy:
I hear he plays a little blues sometimes.
Dare I mention Joe Bonamassa?
Me....( A different me.)
"Back then, he alternated between guitars that are tonal opposites, -- Gibson’s big-band standard, the huge, voluptuous L-5 archtop, and Leo Fender’s spanking new Telecaster solid-body. The no-frills Tele was a new instrument for a new era and, not surprisingly, it helped the young guitarist develop a new sound. “To me,” he says of the Telecaster, “That’s a rock ‘n’ roll instrument.”
I'm a bit of a Bryan Lee fan ............. New Orleans' Braille Blues Daddy.
Hubert Sumlin picked up a tele occasionally
Thing is probably alot of the old blues guys probably played on a tele, just to try it or it was might be available for sittin in on a set.
I suppose we would be remise if we failed to mention the blues great Ralph Macchio...
Sorry - I couldn't keep a straight face on that one...
