Who Invented the Blues?

Answer

The blues originated from the slaves back in who were taken from Africa to other lands. The blues was a dialogue between a slave and his guitar. The itinerant black songsters of the Reconstruction time, armed with the guitar, adapted these songs said to be of the hollers, to the narrative format of the British ballad. The blues was brutal in its depiction of life.
