I'm a beginner too and just bought a ukulele for "the blues" as well. I thought that getting a tenor would be a good choice, bigger body, sounds more like a guitar. Right now i am using a cheap entry level soprano, I do not recommend it as your next uke.
The eleuke looks like it would be a great next ukulele for electric blues, it's next on my list.

Go to you tube and find Pete Howlett playing Robert Johnson
stuff on a SOPRANO! The size has nothing to do with what you
play thats all down to your ability and your 'feel' for the music!

I love blues also. I picked up a used Cordoba 20TM-CE and put low g's on it.....love it. Although it's a "uke" I do want a little "growl" out of my "blues uke." I have my eyes out for a solid mahogany tenor that kind of resembles an old timey "parlor guitar" that the old blues men used to play (actually, they played anything they could get their hands on,.)
