Thanks for clarifying. As mentioned earlier in this thread, different blues speak to different people. That is true with all music. If we all liked the same thing it would be pretty boring and no innovation at all. So, Mike, you have made a very valid point. There are certain blues throughout it's history that I personally don't like and I assume almost everyone here would say the same thing. I am to the point that blues is the only genre I listen to and play guitar to anymore, with the exception of my wife injecting other stuff on the iPod or her electric bass. That probably makes me somewhat narrow minded and even perhaps why I don't "get" Miles Davis.
