That's true. There's something very real about it

That and the fact that the Chicago added more instrumentation. Furthermore, the Delta blues had more of an untrained sound. That's the only way I can explain it lol. It's most evidenced in the voice, in my opinion. They weren't as pretty lol :P.

I love the way people like BB King and T-bone Walker play. Acoustic blues was mostly rhythm guitar. Of course there was slide guitar playing and people like Robert Johnson who played a little rhythm and lead. But T-bone took the single string lead guitar approach of jazz greats like Charlie Christian and made something new out of it, electric blues, or "jump blues". Im impressed by his ability to do something new with it, and inspire people like BB and Albert King, and Chuck Berry.

From these two options definitely delta blues. I can't really get into electric chicago blues stuff (although I kinda like Howlin' Wolf). I love delta blues but even more than that I love Piedmont blues and all the ragtime guitar stuff from 20's and early 30's. Stuff like Blind Blake, Blind Willie McTell, Blind Boy Fuller etc.

^ This was pretty much how I saw the distinction too; nice and simple until SATCHMO had to complicate things:-

^ What a pity that SATCHMO has effectively left, so I can't easily grumble at him for confusing me. As it is, I'm undecided anyway, though leaning to Chicago; not so much for BB King, who I never took to, but for what Chicago blues turned into with the next generation: the more aggressive blues of guys like Johnny Winter, SRV, Charlie Musselwhite, etc.
