Music – Blues

Hi everyone,

We’ve been looking at Jazz the last few weeks but did you know that Jazz has it’s roots in Blues? It’s similar to Reggae having it’s roots in Ska.  Like Jazz, Blues music started in the Southern part of America and it was African Americans who invented this style.

One of my favourite Blues singer is a man named Johnny Lee Hooker.              John Lee Hooker | Stuttering Foundation: A Nonprofit Organization Helping Those Who Stutter      He’s considered to be one of the best guitarists in the world.  He often  ‘talked’ his songs and had a very deep voice.  Listen to this song and tell me what you think.

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care, stay safe,
