I just got together with a new set of players and we tore the living shit out of "In memory of Elizabeth Reed", "Mr.Charlie", "Jessica", "susieQ",
"Southbound", and "Mustang Sally" a 20 minute omage.

It was hot, this has nothing to do with anything, but I had to get it off my chest.

In an atempt to make this post worth while, if anybody wants to learn some Allman Brothers tunes feel free to ask.

Sorry for waisting everybodys time, but I just needed to tell somebody that I finally found the band I was looking for

I know how you feel! Congrats! I just moved into a house and set up a jam room in the basement, bought a cheap drumset that I'll never play, but that makes it easier to jam, a friend loaned me an old PA and now I have a list of lead players, drummers, and bass players and I call and get together with folks on a regular basis. It's incredible how it makes me feel. Keep rocking! Oh, and how about a Mustang Sally post!

We do Mustange Sally in C coming out of or going into southbound.

I play a simplistic funky type blues rythem.

it's a basic blues progression. ie. 2 bars on C7,
i bar on F7, one bar on C7, half bar G7, half bar F7, 2 bars in C7. repeat.

the bass line is fun to dance around:

A-3-----1-3-----1-3-
E---1-3-----1-3-----


I like to solo minor blues.
C, D#, F, F#, G, Bb, C

so that's how we like to play it. you might want to slip the main lick to southbound in there. we havent been able to play one without the other yet

D----------------7h8h9h10---
A-----7-7-8-9-10------------
E-8-8---------------------8-

nice request ded.

just aint easy.

a few chords first - E A D G B E
A7/G- X X 5 6 5 0
A6/F#- X X 4 6 5 0
Bm7/E- 0 (7) 7 7 10 X
Fmaj7- 1 3 3 2 1 0
A/C#- X 4 2 2 2 X
the (7) in that Bm7/E is opptional, you don't have to play it.

you'll want to voice you D as a barre(X54232)

Dicky plays 2 different A chords
regular A should be voiced as such (X07650)
A2 will be barred with no low E (X77655)

everything else is standard Barres

I'll indicate bends as such Full bend=fb
half bend=hb quarter bend Qb bend releases will be marked with an r
v=vibato sustain
intro


A A7/G
E----------------------------------
B-12fb-(slow r)--12fb-r(12)-10-12--

no problem man, happy i could help.

please be with me is an exellent tune, I'n not sure who wrote it. Duane Allman played with derek and the dominoes. I believe he provided the harmonies on layla, so I'd imagine they played the song together.

I haven't really delved into Duanes solo career much. I've mainly studied the harmonies between duane and dicky. I've been fooling around with my slide bar for a while now, and i feel it's time to start deling into duanes world more.

feel free to ask man, I'll help wherever I can.

If you don't get what you want, maybe sotetimes then you don't, leave your mind alone and just get high.

Hey choke.

Blue Sky.

I must confess, I don't really know the intro and what not. I learned this tune on stage, they told me the chords, i played rythem and took a solo. I've never delved into it any deeper as I prefer the mountain jam. but i can tell you what I know.

The soloing is mostly the blues whole tone scale in E. being E, F#, G#, B, C#. the main area it's played in is around the 9th and 12th frets.

E-9----12- E---------------------------12-
B-9----12- B---------------------12-14----
G-9--11--- or G-------------9-11-13----------
D-9--11--- D--------9-11------------------
A-9--11--- A-7-9-11-----------------------
e-9----12- e------------------------------

you can bend the F# and B a whole step anywhere on the board. mostly bend the 11th fret on the G string, and the 12th fret on the B string, also the 14th on high E. I know the first solo starts with the bend on the G string. the jammy bits all E to A

E B A E
Walk along the river, sweet lullaby
E B
we just keep on rollin,
A E A B A
no one worried 'bout where were going oh no
E B
Don't fly mister bluebird
A E
I'm just walking down the road
E B A E A
early mourning sushine tells me all i need to know

B A E A
your my blue sky your my sunny day
B A
lord you know it makes me high
E A
when you turn your love my way
B E A
turn your love my way yeah

notes. the A B A after the first verse is real quick.

so that's what i know, hope it helps. if you have any questions just shoot

Here's one way to play Blue Sky intro:

Intro (/outro):
E A E A E D A E
|------------------7h9-12-9-7--------------------------|
|-----------5-7/9---------------------9----------------|
|-------4h6---------------------9--9----9h11p9--------*|
|-2-4/6-------------------------------------------11--*|
|------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|


|----------------------------|
|-9-7-5----------------------|
|--------6-------------------|
|----------9-----------------|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|

A better way to play the intro (or a way to play it with the other, if you have 2 guitarists)

E|------------------------------------12-------------------
B|----------------------------12--14------14---------------
G|------------------9--11/13------------------13\11--9-----
D|-----------9--11-----------------------------------------
A|--7--9/11------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------

Also, the part after the verse, before the chorus goes:
E|----------------------------------
B|--10b10--9v--7--5-----------------
G|-------------------6--4--6--2-----
D|----------------------------------
A|----------------------------------
E|----------------------------------

I use exclusively bar chords for the E, A and B. For the solo, it's all E and A. I play the leads around the D, G and B strings on the 9th and 11th fret mostly. No time to tab out some of it...sorry.

As for Jessica, check out Guitar World issue Holiday 2005 isse because it has a full interview with Dickey and how to play Jessica (tabbed out) and it comes with a CD that has a video lesson on how to play it with Dickey showing you! Plus, his son plays the other guitar parts! It's well worth finding.
