Very possible. Plenty of people find old country blues difficult listening.


That is true.

Not quite in tune guitars,

Poor sounding recordings.

The beat floatin' all over the place.

But then, some hear it and get all that.

Sometimes its just a lick or a certain riff heard in the context of that old blues tune

that rocks you and makes the hair on your arms and neck stand up when you hear it.

Other times it might be the tone of that slightly out of tune guitar that gets you.

So many had that goin' on.

Charlie Patton, RJ, Blind Lemon, Son, Bukka, et.al...

They all had it.

The sad 'thang is not being able to listen to them actually do their 'thang in a live situation

accurately.

These guys were not just blues musicians but real entertainers.

Charlie Patton whippin' his guitar about.

RJ, stompin' out a blues and the juke joint rockin' and shakin' some ass.

Son House clawin' at that guitar and bangin' on it all drunk 'n sheeit.

Recordings have only minute and at times ephemeral snippets of what was.

But from that came inspiration.

To sleep, perchance to dream.

And from those dreams came rock 'n roll and modern music.


And Muddy is still my favorite entertainer.

If you find the "magical element" in your idealized country blues, it will be a rhythmic element - essentially a matter of how the musical time works, of how the music "swings".
In the meantime, there are pages and pages of circular discussion on this very topic in the archives on this very site.
The real square deal is to listen to music that you like, play music that you love and interpret it as yourself. All the music that got you to that point will come through in the final product, and that's who you are.


Yes, good advice. I might even find that magical thing and find I ~don't~ like it. ha ha
