The Blues is a genre of music that originated in the African-American communities of the Southern United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is characterized by its use of the blues scale, call-and-response patterns, and a specific chord progression. The lyrics often focus on themes of hardship and suffering, and the music is often accompanied by instruments such as the guitar, harmonica, and piano. The Blues has been a major influence on many other genres of music, including jazz, rock and roll, and country.
