The Blues and Its Heirs

"It has been said that the Blues is the easiest thing to learn and the hardest thing to master. It is easy because it consists of a simple form of chord progression and verses. It is hard to master because it requires a deep-felt connection between the soul and the instrument or voice in order to express the emotion. More than anything else, it is this feeling which is the essence of the Blues." K.Christian Mc Guire
