    Give yourself some time and listen to these songs a few times over...it's an acquired taste for some. But these are examples of what I think is real deal, well played blues. I could give a whole lot more. Sometimes you have to allow yourself to "grow into" this style of blues/jazz. Every one of these artists are top notch players who know how blues should be played and sung. As you'll notice, I have a jump blues/swing jazz bias. But for me that sub-genre offers the me the most challenge as a guitar player. I just love the music. I never get bored with this stuff. There are a hundred different spins you can put on it. Enjoy!

    i think JB is a great guitarist and i like his playing alot.
    I'll have my drink in hand and just give cold stares at my guitar from across the room and say out loud, "this could be you in my hand but you wanted to suck so now you just sit over there and think about that for awhile".---------sam_in_cali

    No different than some of the stuff JoeB plays......
    I found most of that stuff to be the same 2/3 to 3/4....

    It's all in one's opinion.....

    I love Joe Bonamassa as a musician. I have a bunch of his albums on vinyl. My only gripe with JB is the price to see him, and because of this I haven't been able to see him live. I hear it isn't so bad in other areas but in Southern California tickets to see him are pretty expensive. It's like he's the Streisand of Blues haha.

    For my tuppenceworth...i'd say it'snot the notes he plays or doesn't, or the speed, or technique. He's been quite privileged being a child prodigy and maybe therein lies the problem. He doesn't know the blues. He knows the music the songs the techniques, but I don't think he's felt 'the blues'. As lightning Hopkins said, when you got a sad, sad feeling, you can tell the whole world you got nothing but the blues.
    I personally love his music and playing. He's uniquely JB. Comparing 2 guitarists is like comparing 2 meals you ate when you while you was hungry... maybe this is a terrible analogy.... lol Rock on folks, rock on!

    Personally I'm a huge fan of guitar. But especially blues based guitar. Anyone who promotes that I can get behind. I like Joe's stuff, most of it. There are some killer players out there that don't nearly get the recognition that Joe gets, but Joe knows these guys and promotes there music as well by having them on the Blues Cruise he puts on and playing on their albums, etc. You should check guys like Tommy Castro, Josh Smith, Kirk Fletcher (Joe's favorite player), Matt Schofield, Lance Lopez, Wes Jeans, Eric Gales, Gino Matteo, The Delgado Brothers, Trampled Under Foot, just to name a few. If you're a blues loving guitar player, you'll find something here to get pumped about!!
