This is BLUES.

 

Bukka White. Recorded 1963. No amps, no rock shredders. Just a man and his guitar getting down. 

 

Heaven.

On a side note, for you blues fans. I host a 5 hour radio show in my area. It's focus is on traditional acoustic and electric blues without all the rock crossover crap.

 

It's an old school approach to the blues that's been award nominated locally in less than a year of me doing it and we do podcast it from the facebook page.

 

Shameless self plug: ;)

good call.

White was way ahead of his time in terms of playing technique.

Spinning this bitch right now. Top tier Texas acoustic blues from 1948 - Little Son Jackson. Jackson is a complete badass. 

 

Have any of you ever seen an original blues 78? LOL

 

Side note - I can't stand Robert Johnson. Never have been able to. But I LOVE acoustic delta, hill country and and prewar blues. Johnson just is so f*cking soulless and rock dweebs like Clapton worship him. I don't get it. I did like many before me, their first introduction to pre-war blues was Johnson. Honestly, he turned me off for a few years because I was like 'if this is pre-war blues, I don't get the hype.' It almost stopped me from going deeper into the blues.  Then I heard Son House, Charlie Patton, JD Short, Kokomo Arnold and Skip James and my world changed forever. Johnson's just a gateway and I haven't spun Johnson for my own listening pleasure since I can't recall when. I play him on the radio show because I have to. I make sure though I pull from deeper non-cliche Johnson tracks.

 

Side note 2: Achyls that ain't blues. That track above ain't blues to my ears. Rock performers playing what they think "blues" is. These modern rock players playing "blues" is a joke. Just because they do a song that has some blues elements and they "feel" it a little bit and play some cords it doesn't mean it's classified as blues. Blues is serious, deep and only people who make it their life's work and artistic choice get to fly under that banner by my standard. Just like academics. Just because you think you're smart you don't get to own that label without earning it and living it. And yes, Clapton, Bonamassa and Stevie Ray Vaughn ain't blues either. Rock guys stealing elements of the blues, but mostly living in the rock world.
