Blues Songs

Blues is one of the parent genres of western music, having given rise to a number of popular subgenres while also serving as a foundation for a lot of today’s rock and pop music.

Today’s modernized blues style is heavily characterized by pentatonic lead patterns, 12-bar rhythm and a thick guitar presence, usually electric. The blues sound is emotional, driving and often laid over a syncopated rhythm with a simple time signature.

It’s often recommended as a good genre for guitar players to learn, simply because it’s foundational to such a wide swath of today’s music.

B.B. King, Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton are just a few of the most influential blues guitarists of the modern era.
