Allow me to first start off by saying I simply adore this woman's music (voice, guitar playing, and all), and she is slowly becoming one of my favorite blues artists. However, she (unfortunately) wasn't "discovered" until she was in her early 60s. Before then, she worked as a maid (among many other things) just to support her family and had to give up the guitar in the process (which she had been playing before she reached her teens). Anyways... Cotten finally managed to release her debut album in 1958, which stood as a significant and highly influential piece of music.

To mention a few things, she invented several of her own chords as well as created a completely unique guitar picking style (which would later be referred to as "Cotten picking").

I'm also quite fond of Son House's guitar playing... whether his guitar is slightly out of tune or he's just beating the hell out of its strings. In fact... I can safely say I prefer the more acoustic side of blues. I think that it feels more "genuine"... if that makes any sense.

so has anyone said Derek Trucks yet?
also Mato Nanji from Indigenous and Freddie King need to mentioned if they haven't already.
Papa Mali is also very awesome and has deeper blues roots then many of the guitarist mentioned, whom i would say play more rock then blues.

don't get me wrong, i love Hendrix and Haynes and Bloomfield. But they really play(ed) rock with a heavy blues influence.

I believe I mentioned Trucks earlier. He's probably my favorite younger guitarist. He does a lot more than Blues, though. He is a very Jazzy player. I've never really heard anyone play the guitar like he does, he does some crazy stuff that I don't even understand sometimes

I know Buckethead isn't a blues guitarist, but he plays the blues sometimes - on albums like Population Override. I really like the way he plays the blues. I'm sure some people would have trouble calling it that, but there's certainly some blues to it.

Blind Willie Johnson is amazing. Has the fastest vibrato ever recorded. Duane Allman is a mad man too and am digging Sea Sick Steve
