We explore where the blues came from and how it went on to influence many modern genres of music. From Delta Blues pioneers like Robert Johnson and Son House to Chicago Blues icons like Muddy Waters and B.B. King. We breakdown how this genre can be heard in everything from heavy metal to country music. Later Nahre and LA take the elements of the blues to create their own unique track.

MikeQ invited us to House of Vogue, Qween Beat’s monthly ball, to meet the musicians and dancer’s of the ballroom scene and find out what makes their music so captivating.

The golden ratio is the irrational number Phi. We see it everywhere in the world around us. But, did you know that you can also hear it in your favorite music? Since the beginning of time Phi-also known as the golden ratio-has inspired the world around us. Have you ever noticed how some pieces of music just seem to make sense? From the notes and chords to the phrasing and dynamics, they can all feel like they were meant to go together. Many people believe this is not a coincidence but the golden ratio in action.

I'd have to correct you on calling AC/DC 'heavy metal'. Most of their songs don't come close to heavy metal but rather fit comfortably under the hard rock label. Most heavy metal bands ever since the NWOBHM also sound less 'bluesy' compared to the hard rock and early metal bands like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Motörhead.

The music you two produced was beautiful, but it wasn't the blues. Music that is blue, isn't always the blues. When artists begin to say things like, "I'm going to interpret __ my way"-that's code word for being too self indulgent to care about authenticity, and the integrity of the thing they're interpreting.

The thing I've never understood about guys like John Cage is how they got on stage. None of the ideas presented here are particularly insightful or difficult to come up with - tuning a bunch of radios would sound interesting, and the 12 tone row stuff is kinda cool: but they're just cool ideas - it's not really a musical composition or performance as it's essentially just based on an algorithm or chance. I get that they're groundbreaking in the sense that no one had done it before, but why would they? Why would any theatre want to show John Cage's 4'33" in the first place? Would they accept the idea of it came from one of the ushers? How did these people get to be so important with just these quirky little ideas?

I think you missed one hugely important feature of the blues: the shuffle. You can't play the blues straight; that's rock and roll

I would love to see a whole series of these kinds of videos, where you travel around the world with each episode focused on a different somewhat unique, non-mainstream instrument. Exploring the different kinds of playing styles, the histories of it, and how it is making a comeback in modern music.

A little thing you missed and that I find very important in the blues is the "turnaround" at the end of the 12 bars. The last measure of the 12-bar blues is very important, because it is both the place where you go back to the beginning and fall on you feet again, and also the place where the players/singers go crazy. The 12 bar is something like "start easy...crescendo...bit more...more...go crazy, aaaaand...back to easy".

I am the Exu of blues: anything that when was black was the Devil's then once it got white it became Jesus'. I'll call it all blues. That's it, Jesus is blues." (Bluesman - Baco Exu do Blues)

Actually, the blues borrowed from the country music which historically predated it. It was a mixing of the African rhythms and vocal traditions of the freed slaves with those 6 magical notes of the western music scale. This in turn had some effect on later country stylings, especially the guitar. And don't forget that the slide or bottle neck came from Hawaiian players.

With few exceptions, art is going to come forth from the subconscious. The universe is electromagnetic and its resonances will be the most efficient. We are the tools for its echoes.

People tend to forgot or not know that the blues was about singing about the highs and lows of life. You don’t need an instrument at all. The guitar, mouth harp, and pianos were simply for accompaniment, or to answer vocal phrases. Over the years the focus became about “playing” the blues. I believe this dilutes the art. Many of the greatest blues artists were fantastic guitarists or pianists, but their singing is what really moves the listener. From the Three Kings, to Buddy Guy, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and many others. Also, when it comes to playing guitar or piano, the weaving in and out of minor and major blues scales while playing over the dominant chord is also important. This creates a sound that is unique and more expressive than simply playing strictly minor or major blues scales.

No. Scotch-irish folk is it, thats were the blues originated combined with afroamerican influx. Where u think the guitar comes from, clearly an abstracted and adapted appalachian instrument in Blues. All modern music is irish folk in the end, pimped with afroamerican folk.There is a history of history.
