    Roscoe Beck. More jazz influenced lines. Any of his work with Robben Ford would be good, especially the first Blue Line CD.

    Can someone point me towards a rock band that doesn't use distortion?

    The "stereotypical" blues lines are one of the most identifiable attributes of blues music. But if pressed, I gotta go with Roscoe Beck too.

    Johnny B. Gayden brought some gospel and funk vocabulary into Albert Collins stuff.
    (Yeah, I know Gospel and Funk start with the blues, but you know what I mean :D)

    Check out Lucky Peterson's 'Black Midnight Sun' CD, Bill Laswell produced and played bass on it, a little different take on the form.
    Lucky Peterson always has killer bassist on his CDs.

    As I see it "blues" is an on-going and evolving music ... atleast it is here!


    :meh: ... IMO way too many folks think it still fits a 1959 model

    Ahh, here we go!

    Noel and Kenny Neal Check out Carey Bell cd's
    Johnny B. Gayden everybody on Alligator Records pretty much
    Calvin "Fuzz" Jones see him on maxwwell st in blues bros. movie, played with everybody in chicago blues.
    Dave Mayers ( 3 aces )

    theres so many more. Nothing wrong with a stereo typical blues line. Its NOT the notes..its in the way you play it.
     
  15. Nathan East (with E. Clapton). Cool lines & great job ;)
