The blues is a vocal and instrumental music based on the use of the blue notes and a repetitive pattern that typically follows a twelve-bar structure, hence the term 12 bar Blues. It evolved in the United States in the communities of former African slaves, from spirituals, praise songs, field hollers, shouts, and chants. From blues music came great artists, such as Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Bessie Smith, and others. The blues influenced later American and Western popular music, rhythm and blues, rock and roll, hip-hop, country music and pop songs. The first recording of the blues was in 1895. George W. Johnson's recording of "Laughing Song" was the first blues song to be recorded.
