Blues music

I'm just sitting here at work, and I'm a sophisticated fellow, when it comes to music. I'm a guitarist, a musician of sorts, so I'm incredibly picky with my music. I must say that if you like the blues, you have to check out Joe Bonamassa. Holy heck.

Re: Blues music

We used to have a feature thread on the forum, run by a member over in NASAland FL. Monday morning Blues Joe is in there several times as well as artists both past & present.

Re: Blues music

Wow!
I listened to one song, "So Many Roads (live)", and
had to create a Pandora station. First I had heard of him.
Thanks for sharing!

Re: Blues music

You'll want to checkout his work with Black Country Communion. It kinda blows my mind that so many people are just discovering this guy.

Frankly, I'm not into Blues ... so I don't find him as impressive as others seem to. To each his own.

Re: Blues music

I got his a few days ago. It kind of fits in here a little...

understanding the why and wherefores of the blues, here are some very fundamental >>

rules:



1. Most Blues begin with: "Woke up this morning..."

2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the Blues, unless you

stick something nasty in the next line like, "I got a good woman,

with the meanest face in town."

3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat

it. Then find something that rhymes - sort of: "Got a good woman

with the meanest face in town. Yes, I got a good woman with the

meanest face in town. Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher and she

weigh 500 pound."

4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck

in a ditch... ain't no way out.

5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks.

Blues don't travel in Volvos, BMWs, or Sport Utility Vehicles. Most

Blues transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Jet

aircraft and state-sponsored motor pools ain't even in the running.

Walkin' plays a major part in the Blues lifestyle. So does fixin'

to die.

6. Teenagers can't sing the Blues. They ain't fixin' to die yet.

Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, "adulthood" means being old enough

to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.

7. Blues can take place in New York City but not in Hawaii or

anywhere in Canada. Hard times in Minneapolis or Seattle is

probably just clinical depression. Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City,

Memphis, and Nawlins are still the best places to have the Blues.

You cannot have the Blues in any place that don't get rain.

8. A man with male pattern baldness ain't the Blues. A woman with

male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg 'cause you were skiing

is not the Blues. Breaking your leg 'cause a alligator be chomping

on it is.

9. You can't have no Blues in an office or a shopping mall. The

lighting is wrong. Go outside to the parking lot or sit by the

dumpster.

10. Good places for the Blues

a. highway

b. jailhouse

c. empty bed

d. bottom of a whiskey glass


11. Bad places for the Blues

a. Nordstrom's

b. gallery openings

c. Ivy League institutions

d. golf courses

12. No one will believe it's the Blues if you wear a

double-breasted suit and Guccis, 'less you happen to be an old

person who found them in the dumpster and you've been sleeping in

them for a week. Suits like in the "Blues Brothers" are ok.

13. Do you have the right to sing the Blues?

Yes, if:

a. you're older than dirt

b. you're blind

c. you shot a man in Memphis

d. you can't be satisfied

No, if:

a. you have all your teeth

b. you were once blind but now can see

c. the man in Memphis lived

d. you have a 401K or trust fund

14. Blues is not a matter of color. It's a matter of bad luck.

Tiger Woods cannot sing the Blues. Sonny Liston could have. Ugly

white people also got a leg up on the Blues.

15. If you ask for water and your darlin' gives you gasoline, it's

the Blues. Other acceptable Blues beverages are:

a. cheap wine

b. whiskey or bourbon

c. muddy water

d. black coffee

The following are NOT Blues beverages:

a. Perrier

b. Chardonnay

c. Snapple

d. Slim Fast

16. If death occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's a

Blues death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is another

Blues way to die. So are the electric chair, substance abuse and

dying lonely on a broken-down cot. You can't have a Blues death if

you die during a tennis match or while getting liposuction.

17. Some Blues names for women:

a. Sadie

b. Big Mama

c. Bessie

d. Fat River Dumpling

18. Some Blues names for men:

a. Joe

b. Willie

c. Little Willie

d. Big Willie

19. Persons with names like Michelle, Amber, Jennifer, Debbie, and

Heather can't sing the Blues no matter how many men they shoot in

Memphis.

20. Blues Name Starter Kit

a. name of physical infirmity (Blind, Cripple, Lame, etc.)

b. first name (see above) preceeded or replaced with name of fruit

(Lemon, Lime, Kiwi, etc.) But that's iffy.

c. last name of President (Jefferson, Johnson, Fillmore, etc.)

For example: Blind Lime Jefferson, Pegleg Lemon Johnson or Cripple>>

Kiwi Fillmore, etc. (Well, maybe not "Kiwi.")

21. And I don't care how tragic your life is, if anyone in your

family plays soccer, you can't sing the blues.

Re: Blues music

Yup, dems da

Add: you cain't do Blues if you wear a shiney leather belt with a buckle bigger'n a '55 Thunderbird Continental Kit. You can tho, if you wear a rope as a belt, with a hangman's noose tie'n it off - or if you wear just one side of a pair of frayed two-color suspenders.

Check out the songs: "Blue & Evil", "Slow Train", "The River" & "The Ballad of John Henry", they are all done by Joe

Another artist that not many people know of is Bernard Allison, he's Luther Allison's son.
