Watch the Southern Comfort online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing
I can't listen to this performance without thinking about the Allman Brothers band. Along with Lynyrd Skynyrd, they're the consummate Southern rock bands with the sound that defined the genre. In the case of the Allman's, they were the prototype jam band along with the Grateful Dead. With songs like "Jessica", "Blue Sky", "Ramblin' Man", and "Melissa", use of the major pentatonic became identified with the band. If you're not familiar with the Allman Brothers work, and I'm not sure how that is possible, check out their greatest hits recording as well as Live At The Fillmore East.
