    Here is one absolutely great blues tune. Sure it is more rock but the blues is there (especially at 5:25). This appears to be the kind of music that Johnny Winter called Power Blues.

    From "An Offer You Can't Refuse:" This is Walter Horton (Big Walter) with Robert Nighthawk on guitar. Notice that the guitar is tuned down to D, and Walter is playing cross-harp using a "G" harmonica, the lowest-pitched standard harmonica available at that time. It really sits down low, and the groove is fantastic…it's all about "feel."

    And now, a break from the Folk Music Hour...

    Albert King, who played the guitar left-handed and upside down! In other words, he took a normally right-handed and strung guitar, simply turned it around upside down, and played it left-handed. This put his high strings on top, and his bass strings on bottom. This no doubt contributed to his unique bending style, as he had to "pull" the high strings to bend them, otherwise, he's run out of fingerboard space...

    Note that this one is in the unusual key of Db, which gives the bass player the lowest "F" for the riff. This key may also be due to the fact that there are horns, ya think?
