Addition of Rhythm and blues[edit]

Should the article Rhythm and blues be added to this template. There is a portal begun for it Portal:R&B and Soul Music, and would be nice to have it in this topic template.SriMesh | talk 04:29, 1 March 2008 (UTC)


Delta blues is a subgenre, while Chicago blues is a regional scene. Is that consistent?
Isn't the order of the sections a bit odd? You get to punk-blues, whatever that is, before you find Chicago blues. Shouldn't you be talking about fusion after covering all the fundamentals? Go off topic only after covering the topic?

Instruments section[edit]

The Acoustic guitar and Drum kit articles do not mention blues so should be removed. It is hard to then make a case for keeping Electric guitar and Harmonica which are not specifically blues instruments, and no more so than double bass, saxophone, diddley bow etc. I suggest they be deleted and Blues shouter moved to the "Other topics" section.

Change of colour[edit]

In respect of the recent clean up: is there a guideline that says that navboxes cannot be colour coded as they have been for years? I seem to remember a discussion about this and the problem of letter colours, but I cannot find it at the moment.--SabreBD (talk) 16:30, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Typical instruments[edit]

There have been several attempts since 3/2016 to add Hammond organ and amplifiers to typical instruments as well as electric piano and Leslie speaker. These are not typical instruments or not musical instruments at all. The links do not or barely mention blues and do not meet the purpose of a genre navbox. There are already 13 instruments listed. By contrast, {{Rhythm and blues}}, {{Jazz}}, {{Country music}}, {{Rock music}}, etc., do not include instruments or other equipment. —Ojorojo (talk) 18:56, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
