Here's the first chorus of my slow blues - "Blues in a Dream." Starting with a tongue roll. it incorporates almost all the basic blues techniques: tongue blocking, lip pursing, precision bends, octaves etc. Tone, timing and phrasing are paramount in slow blues; there's lots of space around what you play, so there's nowhere to hide. Put yourself into those notes and play it with feeling.
