Bluesforum.com has got the blues!

Blues is a type of music that started on the plantations in the 19th century in America's Southern states. The original blues musicians, the black slaves on the plantations used their music to express their everyday worries on the plantation: relationship issues, issues with the owner of the plantation, alcohol addictions and money problems. There are several stories about where the word "Blues" comes from, but the most likely explanation is that it originates from the Britisch 17th century expression "blue devils" which refer to the mental and physical consequenses deriving of problems with alcohol, especially the lack of it (sweats, tremors, hallucinations etc).
Bluesmusicians in bands, as a duo or solo. Guitar, piano and bluesharp are commonly used instruments in bluesmusic. A bluessong often has a 12 bar structure over a so-called 12 bar chord progression (12 bar blues). On Bluesforum you can find all aspects of bluesmusic. For instance the various types of blues, like bluesrock or delta blues but you can also find bluesmedia like e.g. cd's, dvd's, bluesradio or topics like festivals and concerts. In short: Bluesforum.com has got the blues.
