Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.
Here is an E blues shuffle emphasizing the octave and the minor 3rd - simple pattern that sounds cool. It's sounds quite "minor", unless you bend that G note up to G#. Minor blues is cool too!
The B (5 chord) part is a bit tricky. You can hear in the video how I mess up the first 8th note in the demonstration. That's okay though, you don't have to be perfect when playing the blues, but make sure you keep accurate time - always practice with a metronome! Also make sure you play the correct number of measures for each chord.
I used a Hell Bender from http://www.HellGuitars.com and a Line 6 POD HD500 from http://line6.com
I have lots of gear demos too on this site. Go and take a look at some of my Guitar Videos for some examples of gear I use or have used.
