Texas Blues

The Texas Blues is a geographical subgenre of the Blues. Played with more laid back and swing with variations of other Blues styles. The Texas Blues has a long history, which began in the center of the 1920s and was played mainly with filigree acoustic guitar parts,always as an addition of the singers. After the 2nd World War the Texas Blues changed into a more electric Blues style, with jazz uped guitar solos and horn sections. In the seventies Texas Blues became more rock influenced with distorted guitars (e.g. ZZ Top) and filigree solo parts. Stevie Ray Vaughan represented the Texas Blues in the 80's and 90ern as an virtuos played Blues style, with a small band (Drums, bass, guitar, organ), sometimes even with brass sections but always guitar dominated
