In class we are learning about the blues song genre. Blues was created by African American slaves. It was to communicate and to express feelings to each other. When the African American slaves were free, they spread there music around the world. My music teacher says that there would be no song genres without blues. No pop,rock,bluegrass, or anything! As a music lover, I thought this would be a cool thing to talk about. All music lovers should be VERY thankful for Blues. It is the base of music!
