    Musically, there are a couple notes which are called "blue notes" - and you can feel them even if you don't know about them.
    "In jazz and blues, a blue note (also "worried" note[1]) is a note sung or played at a slightly lower pitch than that of the major scale for expressive purposes. Typically the alteration is a semitone or less, but this varies among performers and genres."

    I'm not much of a musician, but the whole scope of music is fascinating. The stuff resonates inside your brain and emotions - even if you don't know why or how it does.
    Check out this vid....listen carefully to the notes. The string bending does the same thing...expression:

    A real blues player can make a party out of 2 or 3 notes - well, at least the notes start as one note, but then they bend them up and down.

    A lot of the famous riffs you hear from the days of rock are only a few notes - with expression!

    Of course, there are a lot of exceptions to that rule - like "Yes", but that's not blues.

    Real guitar players go their entire lives and are still amazed and confounded what you can do with 6 strings. There is no limit. Infinite.

    The guy in the video mentions BB Kings vibrato - how he shakes the string. I've seen him do that in person and it's pretty amazing. He holds the one finger on the note while shaking his entire hand at a really fast rate. You hear the result, but very few people look at the mechanics. Sometimes he can make it sound like a bumblebees wings (that fast!)...

    Watch the master himself:
