    Another difficult aspect is that many of the ‘old time’ Blues Artists tuned their guitar uniquely — such that some times they only had ‘4’ notes.

    And not all Blues are about ‘picking cotton ‘.
    Bo Carter was master of the Single Entendres

    Banana inYour Fruit Basket
    Won’t You Warm My Weiner
    And, of course, the great classic

    And the female Lil’ Johnson

    Love those hokum blues

    Yep. Some of those Blues songs can make a rapper blush.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.
