Swamp Blues

Early British guitarists also found inspiration in “swamp blues,” a subgenre of blues that developed in the ’50s and was a variation of slower tempo, Louisiana-style blues music that also incorporated elements of Cajun and, eventually, zydeco music. Swamp blues records like those by LIGHTNIN’ SLIM featured shuffling boogie-style beats, a bit of percussion and wailing harmonica.
