    Hello

    I'm guessing you thinking why 8 haha .... well 8 is a lucky number in chinese culture and I'm chinese :D

    Just want a few songs to learn on the side whilst I am diving deep in to theory and the Modes to keep me from getting bored :D

    So I just want a few of you guys to name up to 8 blues songs that are good and inspiring to learn on the guitar :D

    Thanks

    Not sure if I can give you 8 right now, but here's my list to start

    Since I've been Loving You - Led Zep

    Killing Floor - Howlin' Wolf

    I Ain't Drunk - Albert Collins

    Blue Jean Blues - ZZ Top or Jeff Healey, both are worth learning. I love Jeff's version
