    Well, that's a beautiful one. At first I thought it was a Ray Charles cover..

    Here are a few of my favorites:



    This next one might not be slow enough for some, but Sonny Boy Williamson is pretty much my favorite harp player...



    Edit: How could I forget the song that made me fall for the slow blues?
