Welcome to MB Idris
Good to see another Brit -and a blues fan - here. Perhaps I'll see you in the Jazz&Blues section, though these days I spend more time ranting in the UK politics thread.

I think that's wise. Especially at the moment.

Who are some of your favourite artists mate?

Welcome to the site, Ed.

I like pretty much any music too and I'm also a Blues fan. I like Country to Electric Blues. Mississippi John Hurt is one of my all time favorite. I dabble a little in finger-picking. I also like British Rock in all its styles & iterations. I'll listen to bands from The Shads to Sulk.

^ That's a commendable way to start, Idris, but sooner or later you'll end up like the rest of us on MB :-
