... but don't really like blues albums. I'm not sure if anyone else is like me on here, but I really like blues without liking blues per se. Pretty much all of my favorite electric players come from a strong blues background (Mayer, Derek Trucks, Hendrix, etc.), I love when these guys play a blues and I love to hear great blues live. I love to hear bluesy solos during non blues songs, etc. But I just don't like listening to a lot of traditional blues. I can listen to it live all day long, but when it comes to listening to records it's a rare occasion that I'll put on a blues record. I definitely haven't explored the genre enough to write it all off, but I'm just wondering why it is this way. It might have something to do with me loving great songwriting and I don't hear it a lot in traditional blues (again I haven't explored enough). Maybe it's cause I'm young and the blues heydey was about 30-40 years before I was born? Not quite sure. Anyone else like me?
