Learn the scales and practice a lot. When you get comfortable enough, don't worry about what notes you're hitting as much, but the music you produce.

and how to use them :P

yea know the scales well, the most important part is being able to play without thinking about the notes your playing so you can just feel it and play through your emotions

Do what calebrocker said and then just feel it from there.

Play with other musicians, just loosen up when you play the music, it will come naturally eventually, and you'll start to feel the music hella' lot.

^ Thats an excellent suggestion as fun as the blues are alone, they are a blast when you are sittin around jammin with a buncha other blues stringers...and it will teach you so much
