What are your thoughts on the roots of what we call the blues?   What is your thoughts on the definition, roots, musicality of the blues? Did it originate in Africa and was transported to the United States on slave ships? Is the rhythm, the call and response, the hollers and shouts what constitutes the essence of the blues music?

Blues, as an emotion has been around since the creation of mankind. We have all experienced the blues! We find the blues mentioned in almost every genre of music around. But just where did it all begin?
