I hear those Blues guys say how they can pick up any guitar, I've seen B.B. do it with a Telecaster!, and still get thier sound with it. They say thier tone is in thier fingers.
When I first started I was the same way. Don't fret(pun intended) you'll be amazed when one day out of the blue you start to see it.
I own an Epi LP Std., so it's not your guitar.
