Recently, I attempted to Jam along with a friend who is a Blues player. And whilst I had no trouble in holding down rhythms in varied bar lengths, when I was given the nod to take the lead I ended up shredding away in musical territories that made my friend somewhat uncomfortable to the point that he simply ended up stopping playing all together. He also made a comment that I was "Butchering the Blues" In retrospect, I realised that I never really related to Blues music as a whole, and although I can bend my way through the Pentatonic scale I simply find it uninteresting. I've never found any Blues players that have really grabbed my attention or heart, although I am fully aware that most of the music that does is heavily influenced by the blues in general. Is it something I should dedicate more time and effort to? Does anybody else have this issue?
