Amen! And he has a great voice suited to blues music, IMHO.

Listen to this:
Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack The Legendary Sessions V. 1

and then try to tell me that the guitar or the harmonica or the sax are the best. Can you play [B]any[B] of those instruments solo for a whole album and sound this good?

Guitar is the greatest, i whould love to play blues much better, but is not so easy. Sure, it's not hard but requires dedication. Harmonica is much characteristic, sure. Blues is great with anything, just need a good musician

I think the human voice is the primary blues insturment. Most people choose guitar but the guitar nearly always plays off the singer. Blues originated from the field hollers, chain gang songs, African tribal chants and the gospel music of African Americans. All of which only required a human voice to sing.

When Charley Patton and Robert Johnson finally came along, their guitar playing was simply a counterpoint which imitated and enhanced the vocalization of the song. Here's an example:



It's pretty clear that the guitar is subordiante to the vocal on Stones in My Passway, as is the case with all of Johnson's music.

Indeed Robert Johnson's innovation as a guitarist was crafting his playing to compliment his powerful singing voice. There would have been no blues without the human voice.

My personal favorite is slide guitar. (More of a style really, but still seems relevant)
