    Freddie was so good, and I feel like he's often the forgotten King, it seems. He had such a voice on the instrument and always found the perfect notes.

    I imagine member @David Barnett might have something to say about this one.

    Acoustic blues - Lightnin' Hopkins I can't name a title but he has dozens of good records and wrote hundreds of songs.
    Electric blues - Johnny Winter, 'The Progressive Blues Experiment'
    My best friend went to high school with JW, one year behind. My friend said that JW was pretty weird in h/s.
    Both JW (from Beaumont) and LH (lived in Houston) used to play around Houston all the time and it was possible to hear them in small venues.
    Good tunes!

    You may be conflating Gun Club with something else...

    There are many great blues and blues rock albums but if you have to only pick one to learn every lick on it has to be Beano...

    Any of Alligator Records "Genuine Houserockin' Music" compilations should do ya'. I am fond of the one with Gatemouth doing Got My Mojo Working. The entire disc is awesome.

    If you get your blues from here, you are more likely to get paid (or laid.)

    You can learn all the blues licks from any blues album.



    But that one rekkid is not every blues album.

    Well that could be answered from many places, depending on what you're hoping for in the process.
    I guess I started learning Rev Gary Davis style by Jorma Kaukonen but played it my own way.
    I later concluded that it's best to go further back and try to find the source of whatever stuff I hear and want to try to do. Not that it's the best or only approach, but the search is better than a single point along the route.

    The In Session album made by Albert King and SRV is cool because we have the originator and his student, with SRV trying to do the masters due, in his own way, and without doing the typical white boy too many notes not enough feeling thing.

    Just grabbed this random cut without it being the best, off to get some sleep now!

    Bloomfield's playing on this album is pretty spectacular.

    These two are where I started. I thought ofthem before I-opened this thread. I bought a Telecaster specifically to get into Bloomfield’s universe. Jack Pearson turned me on to Albert’s low tuning to get the bends just right.

    Fine choice. I've only recently started listening the t-Birds, and totally love Jimmy Vaughan's unassuming playing. He gets the job done, without all the widdly widdly showboating.

    I've been wearing out Girls Go Wild, and What's the Word.
