New Orleans blues is another really cool regional blues style that mainly has to do with the way drums, piano, and horns are played. But in this tutorial I'll give you a brief introduction to the style with it's Afro-Cuban influence, the jazzy harmony and greasy grooves and finally I'll demonstrate the sound for you with a groovin' backing track.

If you like the sound of this style, check out artists like The Meters, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Guitar Slim, and Allen Toussaint.
