You may be familiar with Stefan Grossman from the many guitar instruction videos and books. One of my all time favourite guitar albums is called Thunder on the Run and I particularly like Stefan Grossman and John Renbourn playing duets together. Stefan has also done brilliant work with Duck Baker.
Apart from being a guitar historian and teacher, Stefan is a magnificent guitar player who gets a beautiful tone from his instrument, Franklin guitar.
In this Tutorial stefan is showing how to play a simple blues in E. There are many musical cliches in this but the way they are executed is what seperates Stefan out from the bunch.
Note how he uses the repeatative alternating bass part, also take a close look at the outro and how hie finishes on the E7#9 chord.
