Does anyone have any ideas for a guitar-piano blues duet? My 13 y/o son has been taking piano for 7 years and is just getting in to the blues and would like to do a duet with me at his spring recital. I could possibly play harmonica instead. I did google but there is not a lot of info out there and thought I would check the collective wisdom here!

cheers,
Michael

Google YouTube for "Pinetop Perkins." You should get some good stuff there.

I was thinking of 'Werewolves of London'

Good choice!

I'd think that just about any good blues tune would work.

I'm listening to "Sweet Home Chicago" right now. :) Nice keyboard/guitar tradeoffs here. (Of course it's a full band, but...)

I love that song. I hear it was the "anthem" of the great depression.
Clapton does a nice version of it on his Unplugged album with a piano accompaniament.
