I thought it was time I tried to do a lesson.

Although I'm not a guitar teacher, I feel it is my duty to pass on some of the things I have learned. Please have patience with my teaching style. I'll do my best to get the basic idea across. I spent a lot of years learning different styles of playing. The least I can do is try to give some of you guitar players a head start.

I have been a Duane Allman follower since I first saw the Allman Brothers on August 17th, 1971. I was on vacation in Boston the summer I turned 16. My friends took me to the Boston Common for the concert of a lifetime. I was so inspired by seeing the ABB and Duane, I traded my acoustic for an electric as soon as I got home. Duane was in a class all his own. He played with so much heart and soul.

Just yesterday I got a CD from the Boston Common show in the mail. It is the fifth release of some of the early shows with Duane. I really brought back a lot of great memories. It also inspired me to do this vid.

This lesson is pretty general. It covers some of the basics of Duane's slide technique. I learned what I know of this style by ear over the years. Look for more lessons that go into more detail on specific songs.
