I’m not an expert on playing the blues, but if I come across someone with a harmonica or acoustic guitar I usually end up playing the blues with them. It’s really simple to follow along.
The blues usually starts off on the root note, which makes it simple to identify the key. Not only that, but you don’t have to worry about major or minor scales. You can play minor notes over major chords, no problem.
Most of the lead notes are in the pentatonic scale. Here’s me playing the blues (That’s how I define it anyway). I throw all kinds of scales the E, A, and B chords, and they seem to work just fine.
