    I think it could be cool and shocking especially if it was all clean guitar.

    what are some thoughts on this.

    one music genre is too constricting musically for mikael imo. i don't think he can help but write progressive genre bending stuff. it would probably end up sounding like "this was" by jethro tull or something.

    No, it wouldn't be cool.

    I like blues and when I want to listen to it I don't put on an Opeth album - I put on a Roy Buchanan or a Melvin Taylor or some other great blues musician's album.

    But one cover of a blues song by Opeth would be cool though.

    Even though Mike is good at the bluesy moods, I'd pass this one.

    I wouldn't mind some bluesy sections to a few songs but not a whole album.

    Solo on Arriving Somewhere But Not Here is epic, more of that.

    That's not blues to me. I'm thinking more like Bridge of Sighs and such.
    That's a good fucking cover btw.

    but Mikael's soloing is far from the great blues guitarists imo, even though they blend really well with their songs. his songwriting and song structuring is the best part abt him, which isnt the main part in blues songs. bluesy sections in songs is a great idea, which is already present.

    Blues usually isn't all about clean guitars. You need some dirt in the sound to call it blues.

    great cover indeed, Robin Trower is such an underrated blues guitarist.

    but they should not cover a whole blues album. It would be boring imo

    I agree, but a song in that style would fit on an album in my opinion.
