The Country Blues: A short history and how-to.

The blues is a style of music played mostly on the acoustic guitar, which began in the early twentieth century when the African- American population started moving to northern cities from the southern states.

This has lent itself to the various styles of the Blues, each emerging from the influences and additions of regional music styles, particularly in states like Texas, Atlanta, New Orleans, and Kansas city.

The ‘Blues’ are a representation of changing social scenarios, economic status and modernization. It isn’t surprising then that the music resonates with loneliness, feelings of ostracism, and sadness.
