... I was wondering whether you guys could point me to the kind of Blues I want to discover. And I think I've found my answer...
Blind Willie McTell Mississipi John Hurt Skip James ...
How do I know? Thanks to this lady:
If you have just started your journey into blues it will a long and enjoyable one mine started 30 years ago and I am still on my journey - but please look forward as well as looking back. There are some fantastic new blues bands and blues players about.
We can go back almost 100 years from now with blues and there are some great artists throughout.

You're welcome. I love Stefan's old time blues style. He learned from the master, Rev. Gary Davis. If you search his youtube posts you will find some great stuff. This "old time" finger style blues will keep you picking for years! Enjoy
Yes, these are nice. I think I have come across Stefan Grossmann before. Unfortunately... Uh, I will have to spare those, for.. uhm.. later (on a related note: man, I love the city's library. Got me 8 cds of Blues with a good dose of Folk (or vice versa) in it today: All of the above plus Robert Johnson)
