Re: Joe and Andy!
I've never bought into that whole, "oh, if you're not playing slowly with feel (essentially, if you're not playing those same old cliche blues licks over and over), then you're not playing blues" thing...
Trust me, I live in the blues capital of the world, and I've seen my fair share of blues acts. The ones that set themselves apart are the ones who aren't afraid to go outside the box. After all, blues is music, which is a creative artform.
Regardless, those licks are still mainly just basic pentatonic stuff (maybe just sped up a little), the most widely used scale in blues.
