Chicago blues came about when over a million workers from The South migrated north to work at the factories in big cities like Chicago. They took their delta blues with them, but started using electric instruments, horn players, and jazzy harmony. It's a really cool sound, and after introducing you to a couple of key elements in this sound, I'll demonstrate it with a Chicago-style backing track.

If you like the sound of this style check out artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Freddie King, Elmore James, and Paul Butterfield.
