Blues Maker – Not everyone likes Blues and/or its sub-genres. The most prevalent complaint about Blues is that it’s the gloomy and depressing side of music. To some extent this is true, but Blues is much more than that. First and foremost, it’s the telling of a story about the events and desires of unfortunate souls. I find Blues as one of the most heart-warming, sensational styles out there. If you feel the same, drop by Blues Maker and create your very own Blues track, lyrics, harmonica and guitars included.
This website is beautifully designed and well executed, which make it stand out of the create-your-own-music site bunch. And if you’re looking to broaden your private Blues collection, I’d recommend Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo and Elmore James. See the video below, one of my favorite songs by Muddy Waters.
