For anyone looking to teach or learn some basic blues guitar, I have a find for you. Lurking through the miles and miles of endless links in About.com, there is resource blues lovers should know about.
Written by both a teacher and a musician, the guide provides visual and auditory links. About.com's Dan Cross, Guide to Guitar, offers up a simple, well presented "How To" for inspiring blues artists, or even for blues loving non musical individuals who want to know what makes a blues song, a blues song.
"Here's a quick and easy little blues riff played by Robert Johnson that you can learn with the help of an mp3 and tab,"exclaims Cross, using Johnson's "Little Queen of Spades" in the above link.
After learning the riff, there is no guarantee that Gibson will name a guitar after you, however.
