haha, who cares about my teeth? As long as it sounds good, I'll break what I want.
Sid: Mississippi Delta Blues, or just plain Delta Blues, is the old-school original blues music that developed down in that region. 2 Famous Delta Musicians are Booker White and (my favourite) John Lee Hooker. It's known for stuff like call-and-response with a guitar (ie, sing a line and then play a riff), use of the minor blues scale, and the major 12-bar blues pattern.
Delta Blues is pretty much as common as Chicago Blues, which isn't as good in my opinion. Chicago blues makes use of the piano (Delta Blues can be played on the piano--but it's usually the piano only) and horns, but can sound corny sometimes because it often borrows notes from the major scale in addition to the blues scale and this can make it lose its 'edge.'
Anyway, I've been working on writing some blues verses so I can use them with my sax and it's not turning out too well... It's hard not to be cliché
when so much of the blues stuff out there is VERY cliché, but I'll get the hang of it.
For anyone else in my position: learn the song 'boom boom' by John Lee Hooker. Sing the verses and play the guitar bits on your sax. Try to make the sax part up by yourself. It helps more to be inventive than by just playing what Hooker played.
