Scuttle Buttin by Stevie Ray Vaughan

The Main Theme

“Scuttle Buttin'” is an instrumental showpiece of Stevie Ray’s lightning-fast chops. It’s built around a standard 12 bar blues progression at 160 beats per minute (bpm).

It will not be possible for many players to learn it at full speed, but you should give it a try anyway. With steady practice, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can build up speed. You might not get it at the target 160 bpm, but you can try it!

The same primary lead fill is used throughout. Once you get it down you’ll find the rest of the song easier to learn.
