so, recently, i'm getting more and more into blues. maybe because i'm getting older and fatter and lose my hair...dont knok. anyway, i would be glad if you could give me some recommendations, because i'm still pretty new to Blues.
Here an extract of what i like:
.) modern stuff:
absolutely like Joe Bonamassa, especcially the "Ballad Of John Henry" record for me is absolutely amazing, also becuase its way more "swampy" than his other records...

another "new" guy, who immediately turned into one of my favourites after seeing him live a few weegs ago: Henrik Freischlader, young (28 - hey for a "blueser" thats prett young!) guy from Germany - absolutely amazing concert, and propably the best live-guitar-tone i have EVER heard.

one cannot mention blues, and forget about Robert Johnson:

or Muddy Waters:

or Howlin Wolf

or Willie Dixon

and yes, of course i'm also aware about some "in-between" stuff, neither "new" nor real classics, but i didnt hide under a stone the last 20 years, so i know SRV - wont post videos as there has just recently been an apprecciation thread.
so, what i'm actually searching for, is - i guess- something crossing the lines between Robert Johnson and Joe Bonamassa (when he is playing swampy stuff )...
