Blues for Greeny is the tenth solo studio covers album by Irish guitarist Gary Moore, released in 1995. It is a tribute to Peter Green, guitarist and founder member of the band Fleetwood Mac. The album was recorded using the same 1959 Les Paul Standard used to record the original tracks, Green having loaned and then sold the guitar to Moore after leaving Fleetwood Mac.
