The St Louis Blues
The St Louis Blues The American sheet music publishing industry produced a great deal of ragtime music. By 1912, the sheet music industry had published three popular blues-like compositions, precipitating the Tin Pan Alley adoption of blues elements: "Baby Seals' Blues" by "Baby" F. Seals (arranged by Artie Matthews), "Dallas Blues" by Hart Wand and "The Memphis Blues" by W. C. Handy. Sheet music from "St. Louis Blues" (1914) Handy was a formally trained musician, composer and arranger who helped to popularize the blues by transcribing and orchestrating blues in an almost symphonic style, with bands and singers. He became a popular and prolific composer, and billed himself as the "Father of the Blues"; however, his compositions can be described as a fusion of blues with ragtime and jazz, a merger facilitated using the Cuban habanera rhythm that had long been a part of ragtime; Handy's signature work was the "St. Louis Blues".

Duane Allman Dicky Betts
Allman Brothers was the right blues band at the right time with the right repetoire and attitude to rejuvinate the blues. Dickie Betts, Duane Allman and Greg Alllman were sweet musicians that didn't try to copy other blues artists. The Allmans Brothers repetoire mixed classic blues songs like "One Way Out", "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Stormy Monday" with long, heavenly jams like "In Memory of Of Elizabeth Reed" and "Mountain Jam" for magical blues concerts.
Anyone that saw an Allman Brothers concert - then or now - will say it's one of the best concerts they ever saw in their life. While Duane Allman is gone, Greg Allman, Dickie Betts and Warren Haynes have kept the spirit of the Allmans Brothers alive and the music vital... If you ever have a chance to see "The Allman Brothers" live - just do it!!

Rory Gallagher Taste - was an Irish blues and rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. Born in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal, on 2 March 1948, he grew up in the city of Cork. Rory was based in London during most of his 30-year career; he toured extensively, sold 30 million records, and had a worldwide following of loyal fans.
In 1963 Rory Bought (second-hand) the famous '61 sunburst Fender Stratocaster, for 100 pounds, in Cork this was apparently the first Stratocaster in Ireland, The 'battered Strat' was to be Rory's most notable trademark over the next 31 years. At age 16 Rory joined the Fontana show band, Rory toured with the show band until a point where only three members of the band showed up for a specific gig, Rory persuaded the promoter that they could play anyway, the three piece line up then became Taste.
Taste toured until 1970 including a US and Canada tour supporting blind faith, and a headline spot at the Isle of White festival in 1970. At the end of 1970 Rory went solo, forming another 3-piece band the “Rory Gallagher Band” the line up changed over the years:
Carlos Santana was never accused of being a blues guitar player so why is he on "Blues for Peace"? Mainly out of respect for Santana's love for the blues and how many people got turned on to the blues. Also, Santana performed in major blues festivals as far back as Woodstock and more recently at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival. Guilty by asociation, Santana's tone, feel, intonation and rhythm, are the blues... Santana, we love you and your Latin licks.. now if only you'd make a "Black Magic Woman" inspired blues album... hmmmm???
Chuck Berry invented rock n' roll guitar as we know it to this day... the wild, screaming guitar solo's like "Johnny B. Goode" and "Roll Over Beethoven" were copied and inspired generations of rock bands. Just put on a Chuck Berry guitar solo, if that don't turn you on... you got a hole in your rock in roll soul... Some of Chuck Berry's greatest hits are "Johnny B. Goode", "Around And Around", "Maybelline", "Memphis, Tennessee" and "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Let It Rock".
Johnny Winter burst on the blues scene like the Lone Ranger, he could play blues that had just the right touch of rock in it to appeal to both blues fans rock fans.. not an easy thing to do.. but that's always been Johnny Winter's appeal and if that don't get you... his texas blues will knock you cold. Can you imagine playing with Muddy Waters? Much less recording an album with him? That's exactly what Johnny Winter did... recorded the album "Breakin' It Up & Breakin' It Down" with Muddy Waters.
One thing about Johnny Winter, he knows talent when he hears it! Johnny played in a a trio with Tommy Shannon on bass, before SRV snapped him up...Talk about timing.. Johnny Winter was on the first cover the Guitar World.. Some of his best albums are "Second Winter by Winter","Live Johnny Winter", "Still Alive and Well", " I'm a Bluesman" and "Captured Live!".
Sometime, when you're searchin' for inspiraiton for new songs, band arrangements and blues album concepts.. check out Johnny Winter's catalogue.. there's plenty of killer licks and funky ideas for your blues band.

B.B. King appeared on PBS TV in 1968, holding his trademark Gibson ES 355 - Lucille, hair slicked back, sweating profusely, singing and playin the blues. As a kid I remember people talking about B.B. King. They said, "Well you know, B.B. King, he's not really a good guitar player, all he can play is the blues." Twenty, thirty years later, I'm still trying to learn to play blues guitar like B.B. King!
B.B. King was the featured guest artist and spoke to the interviewer with a guarded tone to his voice and in humble way. The contrast between B.B. King's soft spoken words and wailin' guitar made a deep impression on me. I remember trying to catch the beat and couldn't because most of B.B. King's guitar licks started off the beat. Off the beat? Now there's a concept I'd never encountered as a fifteen year old guitar player.
It was also the first time I heard anyone bend guitar strings... and what B.B. King called "those funny little sounds that please me" - sounded out of tune to me! Yet something caught my ear and I was determined to try and figure out the secret to play like B.B. King. And twenty, ok, thirty years later, I'm still trying to figure out how to play the blues guitar like B.B. King!
B.B. King projects tremendous presence on the stage singing, playing guitar or just standing around. His style, developed in the Big Band Era, is similar to T-Bone Walker, playing off the riffs of the horn section versus blowing over the top. Many of B.B. King's licks come out of nowhere at the end of the horn parts. Other times you can hear B.B. 'comping' simple licks to the groove of the horn section.
Talk about the pentatonic scale, the blues scale ... forget it. Talk about the BB King Scale ... B.B. King just plays what he hears and often plays major thirds & major sevenths as well as wierd bends (flat 2nd up to minor third) that can't be taught.
Another unique aspect to B.B. King 's guitar style is his vibrato and the way he mixes phrases that start on the beat with licks that start off the beat. There are few guitar players that do this today ... just listen to a few BB King solos, count out the rhythm and see for yourself.
Sound wise, B.B. King's guitar is usually in the mix, not blowing out the band. Many of B.B. King's best records like crackle a soulful mix of B.B.'s vocals, blues guitar licks and audience reaction. I don't know about you, but I'v got a strong urge to hear a BB King CD!
By Johnny Mayer.
B.B. King Guitar TAB
Here are some cool books with B.B. King guitar tab. It's amazing when you actually get a few B.B. Kings licks under your fingers. It's best to learn to play by ear and these B.B. King guitar tablature books will help you play the blues from the heart - just like BB King.
As legendary guitarist Robert Johnson put it, Chicago has been a “sweet home” for the blues. The most recognizable cultural signature this city has produced, Chicago blues has diverse and contradictory roots: African American migration from the South and the growth of the modern music industry; regional folk genius and ethnic entrepreneurial savvy. This rich sense of origin and history makes blues music such a celebrated civic resource, one that still shapes cultural and social practice throughout the Windy City.
Blues Clubs in Chicago (Map)
The earliest geographic origins of the blues are uncertain, given the multiple versions appearing across the African American South near the turn of the century. In Chicago, the emergence of blues culture in the 1920s coincided with increased musical performance and recording nationwide and paralleled the dramatic growth of black urban enclaves during the Great Migration. Alberta Hunter, Cow Cow (Charles) Davenport, and Blind Lemon Jefferson were among the first blues artists to record locally, under the supervision of J. Mayo “Ink” Williams of Paramount Records. Williams gathered other musicians of note, including Tampa Red (Hudson Whittaker), Big Bill (William) Broonzy, and Georgia Tom, who later modernized gospel music as composer Thomas Dorsey. Although Hunter, Broonzy, and others performed across the South Side, and despite an abundant audience of migrants, there was not yet the extensive network of blues clubs that emerged in later years.
Blues Musicians on Maxwell St., c.1950
Like the rest of the economy, music production suffered during the Great Depression. Between 1926 and 1932, annual sales of phonograph records in the United States plummeted from $126 to $6 million; sales for black performers decreased from $5 million to only $60,000. The decline slowed the migration of blues artists, whose motivation for coming to Chicago, like other black southerners, included economic opportunity. Still, the city continued to serve as incubator of blues music, as musicians awaited the resurgence of the record industry. Tampa Red and Bill Broonzy were joined by such talents as Memphis Minnie (Douglas), Lil Green, Memphis Slim (Peter Chatman), and Sonny Boy ( John Lee) Williamson. With the wartime emergence of local labels such as Bluebird, Chicago became the national center for blues recording—hits like Lil Green's “Romance in the Dark” (1940), Minnie's “Me and My Chauffeur Blues” (1941), and Williamson's “Elevator Woman” (1945) exemplified post-Depression popular music for blacks, North and South. As the community of artists and entrepreneurs grew, blues culture revised the geography of black Chicago. Legendary clubs such as Silvio's, Gatewood's Tavern, the Flame Club, and the 708 opened along Indiana Avenue on the South Side and Lake Street on the West Side, serving as community centers for migrants arriving in ever greater numbers during the 1940s. Blues music also moved beyond studio and stage. The outdoor market on Maxwell Street became a regular weekend venue, and newly arrived musicians found work playing “rent parties” across the South and West Sides.
During the 1950s, Chicago blues flourished, developing the signatures—use of rhythm sections and amplification; reliance on guitar and harmonica leads; and routine reference to Mississippi Delta styles of playing and singing—that identify it today. Consolidation of blues recording continued, with new labels Chess, Vee-Jay, and Cobra all signing and producing large numbers of artists. Of these, the most prominent was Chess, whose first generation of artists—Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield), Little Walter ( Jacobs), Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf (Chester Burnett)—were exemplars of Chicago blues style. The distinctive sound of these artists restructured popular music, providing fundamental elements for subsequent genres like soul and rock and roll. Indeed, the work of Waters on songs like “Rollin' Stone” (1950) and “Hootchie Cootchie Man” (1954) had international influence, subsequently inspiring the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and other British bands. Dixon was also a figure of special note—in addition to playing bass and writing for artists ranging from Waters to Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, he supervised most of the studio sessions at Chess beginning in the mid-1950s.
A key catalyst to the blues' postwar popularization were “black-appeal” disc jockeys, such as Al Benson and Big Bill Hill, who ensured that records released by Chess, Vee-Jay, and other labels received public exposure. By the late 1950s and early 1960s a new generation of West Side artists, including Otis Rush, Magic Sam (Maghett), and Buddy (George) Guy, carried the work of Waters, Dixon, and other Chess artists even further. Chicago blues soon attracted substantially broader audiences. In 1959, Dixon and Memphis Slim toured England and the Middle East: they would return to Europe in 1962 with a full roster of artists to perform in the first of many annual American Folk Blues Festivals.
The history of Chicago blues since the 1960s has been a contradictory one, combining periods of recession and renewal. By the end of the 1960s, blues had infrastructural as well as aesthetic presence. WVON, the all-day radio station opened by Chess owners Leonard and Phil Chess in 1963, maintained a healthy blues playlist, augmenting programming from other local stations. Blues nightclubs continued to shape black neighborhoods on the South and West Sides; Roosevelt Road, Madison Street, and 43rd Street became blues thoroughfares. With the failure of Cobra Records in 1959 and Vee-Jay in 1966, Chess stood as the only remaining major label and, under the supervision of Willie Dixon, consolidated the remaining talent. Old rivals such as Buddy Guy and Otis Rush were signed, along with newcomers Etta James, Little Milton (Campbell), and Koko Taylor. Yet blues music found itself at a disadvantage commercially next to soul, gospel, and other new genres of black popular music. Chess went out of business in 1975, by which time most older clubs were closing down.
While Chicago blues did not recapture its centrality to the civic life of the African American community, a renaissance has been building since the late 1960s, when blues found a new audience drawn from followers of rock music searching out roots artists. Such local labels as Delmark, which recorded Junior Wells (Amos Blakemore) and Magic Sam (Sam Maghett), and Alligator, which recorded Koko Taylor and Lonnie Brooks (Lee Baker, Jr.), built a new national audience for Chicago blues. Old-line clubs (notably the Checkerboard) on the South and West Sides have been joined by new venues on the South, West, and North Sides (notably Kingston Mines) serving the tourist industry and predominantly white fans of blues. In 1984 Chicago inaugurated an annual blues festival. Continued participation in Chicago blues culture underscores that, as in earlier times, the music serves as “living history,” shaping both memories of and hopes for urban social life.

A guy will promise you the world and give you nothin', and that's the blues. Otis Rush

Don't waste your time away thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues. Jon Bon Jovi
Elvis deserves a lot of credit for bringing the blues to middle America, not the Vegas stuff. The early stuff, The Sun records, and the first few RCA records. He was wonderful, he had the power, the drive, and he was so dedicated to his music. Peter Tork
Every time the guys were knocked out by my guitar playing and the girls were knocked out by the type of songs I did. That set us apart from the average blues band. George Thorogood

Hill Street Blues gave me an opportunity to work with an ensemble cast of people whose work I admired. Steven Bochco

I don't wanta do any Blues or any sad songs. Bob Livingston

I go out with my band six months of the year and the rest of them with the Blues Brothers. Eddie Floyd
I got to see all these incredible blues players, like Jimmy Reed. Johnny Rivers
I guess music, particularly the blues, is the only form of schizophrenia that has organised itself into being both legal and beneficial to society. Alexis Korner
I had a problem with cops pulling me over all the time for speeding. When I was doing Hill Street Blues, the cops said how much they loved the show as they were writing me up; meanwhile my insurance went through the roof. Jennifer Tilly

I know some people will be surprised to hear it, but I've found that my music, whether its blues or rock, or whatever you want to call it, can be channeled into a positive direction that actually helps people. Rick Derringer
I like a very dark house, just black. I sit there and just think. Once I'm still and quiet inside, I'll begin. It's very personal; it has to be. One song may be Bach, the next blues, a song from TV, or a nursery rhyme or jazz piece. Bobby McFerrin

I love Ruth Brown, not just her singing, but Ruth Brown has more girl power than anyone, because she fought hard against people who ripped her off and then helped other artists through the Rhythm and Blues Foundation. Ronnie Spector

I wouldn't count myself as being a true blues guitarist because I feel you have to live it. Robin Trower
I wouldn't think a blues album would be that commercially successful, but I don't really care. I'd do it for the love of blues, not for the money. I've got plenty of money. Christine McVie
I'm certain that it was an incredible gift for me to not only be friends with some of the greatest blues people who've ever lived, but to learn how they played, how they sang, how they lived their lives, ran their marriages, and talked to their kids. Bonnie Raitt
I'm John Lee Hooker in the sense that he was a blues man and he played blues his whole life. I'm a rock guy and I'm going to play rock music my whole life. Sammy Hagar
I'm not a big blues fan, but I don't know anyone who doesn't dig B.B. King. Maurice Gibb
I'm not good enough to be playin' much acoustic guitar onstage. Man, you gotta get so right; I mean, the tones, the feel, the sound. Plus, acoustic blues guitar is just that much harder on the fingers. Johnny Winter

I've said that playing the blues is like having to be black twice. Stevie Ray Vaughan missed on both counts, but I never noticed. B. B. King
If I'm at a party and someone puts on a Blues Brothers tape, I tend to go nuts. Todd Barry

It was stumbling on to really the bible of the blues, you know, and a very powerful drug to be introduced to us and I absorbed it totally, and it changed my complete outlook on music. Eric Clapton
It was the early days of Rock 'n' Roll in this country. We were all struggling to learn music, it might be Country, Jazz, Classical, Blues or even Rock 'n' Roll. Jim Sullivan

James Cotton is a real blues guy, and he played with Muddy Waters, and it surprised me that they would want me to make a record with them, that he called me to do this record. I'd never done anything like that before. But I love blues, so I was very happy. Charlie Haden
Jazz is the big brother of the blues. If a guy's playing blues like we play, he's in high school. When he starts playing jazz it's like going on to college, to a school of higher learning. B. B. King
Johnny Winter is one of the best blues players in the world. He's very underrated. Ritchie Blackmore
Like you and your woman ain't gettin' along and you're in love. You can't sleep at nights. Your mind is on her - on whatever. You know, that's the blues. You can't hug that money at night. You can't kiss it. John Lee Hooker
Logically, when you talkin' about folk music and blues, you find out it's music of just plain people. Brownie McGhee
Lorne finally said, Do the Blues Brothers thing. The response was amazing. People went nuts. Steve Cropper

Etta James My dad was good friends with the Bad Medicine Blues Band - one of the only blues bands in Fargo, as you can imagine! He took me out to see them play when I was 12 years old and I was really inspired by their guitar player, Ted Larsen. Jonny Lang
My early influences were the Shadows, who were an English instrumental band. They basically got me into playing and later on I got into blues and jazz players. I liked Clapton when he was with John Mayall. I really liked that period. Tony Iommi
My family was a Christian family. But I had to get to Kansas to play the blues. Jay McShann
My favorite moment of the whole thing was when John Belushi suggested that I get a hold of all the blues records I could so I could research the music. Steve Cropper

Pop music is aspirin and the blues are vitamins. Peter Tork

The old jazz singers or old blues singers, you always just saw them kind of sitting down and singing. They weren't worried as much about their voice sounding perfect. They would make the song kind of fit their voice. Lucinda Williams

There was one emotional outlet my people always had when they had the blues. That was singing. Ethel Waters
There was some scene in The Blues Brothers movie, when they had the chicken wire across the front of the stage, and it was almost like that. They had a big guard rail around the stage, which kept the college kids from getting on... we had some good times. William Bell

There's no way in the world I can feel the same blues the way I used to. When I play in Chicago, I'm playing up-to-date, not the blues I was born with. People should hear the pure blues - the blues we used to have when we had no money. Muddy Waters
They don't bother too much with the balance and things on blues records. Maurice Gibb
To me, Sabbath was always JUSt a really heavy blues band. That s all we were. We just took those blues roots and made them heavier. Geezer Butler

When I began my career, I was constantly referred to as the kid who could play the blues. Jonny Lang

When you are through with the blues, you've got nothing to rest on. Mahalia Jackson

With my little band, I did everything they did with a big band. I made the blues jump. Louis Jordan

But my big thing was always the blues. Luther Allison

Years Eve 2002 after a month of rehearsals! By April 2002 the band
entered the studio to record their first EP "COAST TO COAST" , which
received great reviews around Australia and limited airplay, but it was
Europe and America that really took a liking to the band!
after a year of gigging around the East Coast the band decided to enter
the studio once more to record a full length album "GREENER"
The album shows Marks maturity in songwriting and playing, the hard
driving songs are still there but now some fine acoustic and more
restrained moments are audible!
The album has received great reviews and airplay all around the globe,
and finally been recognised here in Australia, with airplay on Triple J,
Dig (the ABC's internet radio station) and community radio, the band
have been invited to play their first blues festival at the BROADBEACH

The Blues Authority Official Homepage Description:
We started in 1998, so its been a while already
A big part of our repertoire is own material, influenced by old and
modern blues, jazz and rock. The rest are covers varying from for
example Eric Clapton to Robben Ford pieces. We try not to play clichés,
not that theres anything wrong about clichés but its just not our
goal. The main target we try to aim at when were playing live gigs is
to entertain the audience. This is the most important thing!
