Scuttle Buttin' - Stevie Ray Vaughan [Main Theme]

Scuttle Buttin' is the first track of the album Couldn't Stand The Weather released in 1984. It's a fast (160 Bpm) instrumental blues piece in the key of E. The main theme, which opens and ends the tune, is built around the first open BOX of the E Pentatonic minor scale. Tabs are embedded in the video... Have fun!

Pentatonic minor & Natural minor Solo

I played this guitar solo on the structure of All Along The Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix version) in the key of B minor. During the soloing I used the Pentatonic minor / Blues Scale together with the Natural Minor Scale playing every BOX across the fretboard. You can find the Blues Scale BOXES following this link, its extensions by clicking here and finally here the positions of the Natural Minor Scale. Tabs are available by clicking the link below the video.
