There are two primary schools of thought on how to play the blues on guitar: One is to spit up all the notes and hope some of them stick, à la Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray, not to mention the Jonny Lang/Kenny Wayne Shepherd hordes that have seemingly arisen, phoenixlike, from the ashes of SRV's fallen chopper. Call 'em the Shaq Diesels of the blues -- all power, no finesse. The other school is exemplified by Wills, who paints his tunes in subtle and economical shades of tone. This clever and cunning approach, favored by T-Bone Walker, Jimmie Vaughan and Duane Allman, values what isn't played almost as much as what is. These players know that both have power.
