Anyone can sing the blues; only a select few can [i]belt[/i] the blues. For every six-string slinger and hurricane harp blower, there's a freight train of a voice right up front, puttin' words to the hurt. From Bessie to Big Mama, from Bobby to Etta, these shouters blew the house down with the only instrument God gave 'em.
