But seriously, listen to the music and learn the pentatonic scales. It'll come naturally.

Why would anyone need a book to play Texas Blues? Play I IV7 V7 (E, A7, B7), use a Strat and a Tube Screamer, learn the pentatonic scale, and then die young. Then you are a legend. And people will get in fights over how you were the best guitar player who ever lived and how you reinvented the Blues genre. In all actuality, you just added a few more songs to a genre of music that makes some great background noise. Fun as hell to jam with a friend to.

To start out, yes. You need that, some basic blues song structure, and you need to listen to music.

get the book. it'll help you along better.
