The Allman Brothers' live version of the song "Statesboro Blues" features some of the most legendary slide playing ever recorded...but you don't have to be a master slide player to learn something from this song! We'll go through the basic slide vocabulary in an open tuning, and if you are more experienced with slide playing (Or just a quick learner) you can catch all the hard wide jumps, fast runs and overall virtuosity that Duane Allman shows in Statesboro Blues.

In this tutorial you'll learn all the guitar parts of the classic instrumental southern rock song "Jessica", as made famous by The Allman Brothers Band. It's a 7 minute long instrumental jam tune with a very catchy melody, harmonized by two electric guitars. There's also a great extended guitar solo and a classic acoustic guitar riff that hooks you in immediately. This song is a goldmine of the blues/rock/country guitar vocabulary, and is a lot of fun to play by yourself or jam on with your band.

In this tutorial you'll learn how to play the song Ramblin' Man as made famous by The Allman Brothers Band. This is one of my favorite Allman brothers songs with a distinct Southern vibe, interesting lyrics, beautiful vocal harmonies and lots of great guitar playing. There are quite a few guitar parts in this song and we're gonna break down every note; the harmonized intro, the strumming rhythm guitar that holds it all together, the first solo, the harmonized tag at the end of the song, the harmonized outro solo, the slide guitar and much more!
