 The Blues . Blues Classroom . Glossary | PBS
In the blues, the call and response structure may have derived in part from work and gospel songs, and is particularly prominent in Delta blues and styles arising from it, in which the solo performer often uses his guitar to respond to, and sometimes even complete, his vocal line.
The Delta blues style comes from a region in the southern part of Mississippi, a place romantically referred to as "the land where the blues was born." In its earliest form, the style became the first fl guitar-dominated music to make it onto phonograph records back in the late 1920s.
In jazz and blues, for example, familiar forms may be utilized throughout a song, but the singer may alter the lyrics to better suit their mood, and the instrumentalists may take solos of a length and direction that is entirely determined by them.

 12 Bar Blues Chords
The distinctive sound of blues chords is often created by the flattening of various notes (mainly the 3rd, 5th and 7th).
Blues musicians tend to use phrases and patterns rather than scale runs, though jazz variations of blues can be based on a 12 bar blues structure and can include jazz and blues style patterns alongside each other.
The secret of convincing use of the blues scale is to add a major 3rd (ex 12h) or combine it with a scale which is commonly used in rhythm and blues, swing or jump music.
