The greatest music genre, the power and skill of it came from centuries of slaves being put in pens, and some of the only things they were allowed to do were sing, or play instruments if they had any.

As a result it built up and became an amazing style.

It turned into Rock N' Roll in the 20th century and is played by musicians such as Eric Clapton.

Some of teens condemn The Blues saying its boring, but if it wasn't for the blues we wouldn't have any of the music we listen to.
