The Blues isn’t just a scale or chord progression, but rather a particular feel. Learning the Blues is best done by listening to the greats and then emulating them.

Notice the swing rhythm, the soulful or mournful feel.

Start by playing along. Next, record a 12 bar Blues progression and then playing along with that.
