For Duane Allman


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
When I first started playing the guitar, I was lucky to have a friend that gave me a copy of "Live At The Fillmore" by the Allman Brothers Band.Listening to them jam for 15 minutes on one chord was(And still is)an amazing experience.Duane Allman is still probably my favorite rock guitarist.This song doesn't really sound like Duane,but the inspiration is there.If you get bored feel free to turn it off.

Thanks
so much Feter!By one chord I meant that they would jam in one key for a long time.They might actually be playing 2 or 3 chords but just thinking of soloing in like Am.Glad you liked it!

There's something in the melodic feel...
..or maybe the harmonic feel... what do I know... that recalls something between 'Mountain Jam' and 'Elizabeth Reed'... and reminds ME of Dicky Betts, too...

I always love your playing, Mark. This sounds very nicely recorded to my ears. Clean and full.

I knew I went wrong when I learned that second and third chord...

Nice picture of Duane, too... and playing an SG, if I'm not mistaken...

Ed

Man, it's good to be you.
Is this a jazz medley called "In Memory of Whipping Back Door Elizabeth Hoochie Koochie?" I understand the one-chord issue Feter questions. Pick a scale and goooooo!!!! I love your chord chops, man I'd give anything (but, evidently, time and practice) to do that! This doesn't get tired at all, the dymanics - emotions, whatever you want to call the placed you went here - just keep it cracking. I clicked on some heart candy for you and will come back for that free DL treat when I have my external (iT library) connected.

Unreal
You have an unbelievable sense of feel... hearing people like you that have mastered this instrument is very inspiring... after 20 odd years of mucking about on guitar I'm going to take some lessons (starting this week) to try and take my playing to the next level... but man, I really don't think I have enough years left to ever get to where you are.

Great jam and a great addition to my library! Thanks you!

thetiler said 3494 days ago (February 28th, 2008)
Like was said very smooth
and fun to listen to, kind of reminds me of a laid back dave brubeck but only guitar.

I met his brother Gregg at the front of the last house i had in Corte Madera Ca. Upon him driving up and stopping to talk to him, he had a dollar green corvette at the time with brass muffles. He was listening to his latest album. But the first thing he said is that he grieves every day for his brother. He didn't even know me from adam at the time. He was dating my tenant, he invited me to his house I jammed with him at the back of the house near were Rachel lived in the small cottage my wife and had as a rental. I enjoyed playing a piece called "Little Martha", Duane wrote that. A nice little fingerstyle piece.

This tune you play is very nice indeed!

Thanks for sharing

Just amazing, how you such a substantial composition, constantly inventing something new and interesting to listen to. I'm always impressed by your playing, your feel, your tone, but this feels completely 'composed', in that the structure is so well executed. Great stuff. All tens.

Mark, do you ever ..
.. hit any wrong notes? ;) Lovely playing on a simple theme (simple in structure, but it doesn't sound simple to play). I can't offer any more regarding your amazing playing, but I can offer that you seem to have improved considerably in the quality of the recording on this one. The low signal/high noise situation you usually have is absent for most of the song, although it shows up a little in the quiet passages. Are you playing near a flourescent light or something? Just a thought.
Wonderful post!

I hit
tons of wrong notes all the time.I just try to get out of them by sliding or pull-offs into a note that sounds good.I did use one of guitapick's suggestions on this- I overdubbed it with 2 panned left/right and one in the middle.Keep telling me about buzzing,or anything you can think of to make my recordings sound better-I really appreciate your input!

Hi lbstrat

Nice clean sound on the guitar and well played. Ideed. Must have taken some time to exercise that.

Duane Allman is actually rated as no. 2 in the world by rolling stones. You can see it here at this link: http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/5937559/the_100_greatest_guitarists_of_all_time/

A shame he didn't stick around more than 24 years imagine what he would have been able to play today and the same goes to Jimmi Hendrix ...

Keep on playing the guitar my friend you are doing well. I like some of the jazz-swing in it.

Your guitar is jazz and beauty like the oil painting is made to be
felt.
Very beautiful pronunciation and adequate play.
And, it develops the composition in there is an intonation.

You are such a melodic and clean player.

The idea that this would be boring is hilarious. Dynamic, melodic, and rich with ideas. Very nice, my friend. Sorry it took me so long to get here! Peace.
