The Allman Brothers are my favorite band. Period. My dad is an Allman Brothers freak too. Not only is my sister's name Jessica, but I have a portrait of Duane tattooed on the inside of my right forearm.

Other people post occasionally, but most groups on this site do seem very slow moving.

Yeah.

Hey, are we the only people that are gonna post on this group? It annoys me when people just join a group and then have nothing to do with it...even though I do that all the time. :P:

Yes, of course. You understand what intervals sound good together, and you can steal some licks.

The chord progression? Okay. Still, its worth trying playing along with a solo.

Well, I don't necessarily play along with the solo, but with the progression.

Sweet. Hey, I didn't finish my post before last.

"...one with a long solo, preferably live, and try to..."
...play along with it.

Basically, what you said :P

It is a really cool method. I'm definitely gonna do it more often. I'm actually pretty excited, since I haven't utilized it very much!

Thanks.

The band has helped me develop my ear a lot. I listen to their work so much that it's constantly playing in my head. At first I used to sit by my stereo as the songs were played and attempt to play parts of it. At first this took a while, but afterwards I noticed my ear was quite good.

Apart from that, my improvising skills improved quite a lot (though they're very far from perfect, of course) simply through playing "with" the band.

I highly recommend doing this whenever you have time to.

Also, let me emphasize that I did NOT learn the slide parts to these. I don't want to mislead anyone.


Nevertheless, congratulations on learning that much. I bet you sound awesome playing them, regardless.

Holy guacamole!!!

Golly! You sure have learned alot! And by ear too! That's really cool.

I remember reading somewhere, a method of improvising a solo or whatever. It was in a lesson somewhere on this site, it said something like, listen to a song by a favourite artist of yours, one with a long solo, preferably live, and try to

Not all of them were necessarily one-hundred percent, but I either figured out or learned either the entirety of or the majority of these songs. For your convenience, I listed them in order of appearance based upon the first time they were featured on an album (based upon the album's release date, not the show's date, mind you).

Dang, I wish I could edit posts I've made...

*Have you ever learned to play any songs of theirs...

Wood & Metal wrote on Jun 3rd, 2008 9:59pm

Lol, well that works out nicely!

Ever learned of the any songs of theirs, Heartbreaker?

Hey, why don't we start a thread about the different Allman songs we've learning or have learned? I've been learning to play Little Martha with a friend of mine, and I've been working on Statesboro Blues and Dreams. I don't wanna make the thread oof it now, probably tomorrow :P

Indeed. But Zeppelinism isn't a democracy, so I remain Pope until I die (know on wood).

I actually think most of them have realized this fact, as well.

I actually like them a lot better than Led Zeppelin and have for several years (don't tell anyone).


*gasp*

I won't tell anybody, your secret is safe with me. Can't say the same for the rest of the folks here though...

You know, if this truly is the case, you may have to confess to your followers someday that the Allman Brothers Band are actually better than Led Zep. You'll probably have to step down and have your cardinals elect a new pope of Zeppelinism. You'll probably have to change your name too, and flee like a Midnight Rider to Mexico for a while until the uproar after your resignation has subsided.

But you can do whatever you want :)

I think its kinda neat to hear the Pope of Zeppelinism praising the ABB with much esteem. There's something very unique and special about them.

And to Rhythm Hippy: I didnt know Duane had a sister! I thought he only had one sibling and that was Gregg? Regardless, that's awesome!
