The style uses inside 9th chords that don't have the root note in them which when you are sitting there playing alone the bass note is implied. T-Bone would have had a bass player.
So I am still getting used to the implied root note and that is jazz not rock. Then after I acquired some facility with the chords and pentatonic scale I figured out how to have fun playing against bass line I would alternate with. I took me a couple years to warm up to.
This is a meaningful guitar lesson in T-Bone Walker that you wont feel chiseled about later. I kept coming back to it because the more you learn the more you want to learn. I do want fries with that! Tasty!
