Blues music is a genre of music that originated in African American communities in the southern United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is a form of music that expresses the pain, hardship, and struggles of the black community through its lyrics and instrumentation. Blues music is characterized by its use of the pentatonic scale, a simple chord structure, and a repetitive call-and-response pattern. The lyrics often express the singer's personal experiences and emotions, such as heartache, hardship, and longing.

The origins of blues music can be traced back to the late 19th century and the work songs and field hollers of African American slaves and sharecroppers. These early forms of blues music were characterized by their use of simple chord progressions, repetitive rhythms, and lyrics that often included references to the singer's difficult working conditions.

As the 20th century progressed, the blues began to evolve and incorporate elements of jazz, gospel, and other musical styles. The electric guitar also began to be used more frequently in blues music, leading to the development of electric blues and the birth of rock and roll.

Blues music has had a significant influence on many other genres of music, including rock and roll, jazz, country, and even hip hop. Many famous musicians, such as Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones, have cited the blues as a major influence on their music. Some famous blues musicians include B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, and John Lee Hooker. Even today, the blues continues to evolve and inspire new generations of musicians.

Slightly out of pitch, some notes struggle to hit the bar. As if performed by a secondary school band! It’s certainly beautiful, because the drummer is on time, and the pianist is decent. It’s always the guitarist that ruins the whole thing… Those darn guitarists trying to steal the show.

The piano version of this song. Starts of very calm and relaxing and transcends into a big band blues piece. This is definitely one of my own personal piano favorites. It has a lot of different elements, and the song is in itself really interesting.
