Sometimes referred to as the oldest form of urban blues, St.Louis blues is a distinct type of blues similar to those stemming from other cities from the Midwest such as Chicago and Detroit. This style has some similarities to jump blues and ragtime. It is very often piano based but guitar is almost equally as prominent. The so called ‘St.Louis Shuffle’ is often incorporated, a drum beat with heavy on-the-beat accents.
