Blues Rock 1/5

Blues >> Blues Rock

Blues rock is a genre that originated in the 1950s and 60s and is characterized by the use of electric guitars and the influence of the blues. Blues rock is usually carried by guitars, bass, drums and vocals and is characterized by its heavy, distorted guitar riffs and its emotional, soulful vocals.

Blues rock has its roots in the blues, an African-American musical genre that originated in the southern states of the United States. Over the years, the blues has evolved and spawned many different styles, including Chicago blues and Delta blues.

In the 1950s, guitarists such as Muddy Waters and B.B. King began using electrified guitars, making the blues accessible to a wider audience. In the 1960s, blues rock was popularized by bands like The Rolling Stones, The Animals and The Yardbirds, who combined the blues with elements of rock 'n' roll.

One of the most style-defining albums of blues rock is "Beggars Banquet" by The Rolling Stones, released in 1968. This album was characterized by its heavy, distorted guitar riffs and bluesy vocals and became a classic of the genre.

In the 1970s, bands like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple became popular, combining blues rock with elements of hard rock and heavy metal. In the 1980s, blues rock became popular again through bands like ZZ Top and The Black Crowes.

Gentle but joyful americana, bluegrass crossover. This track starts with only a banjo and then adds mandolin, pedal steel guitar and bass. Wholesome and genuine, great for outdoors, hiking, fishing, hobby, nature etc with elements of Western, folk and Americana.
