Watch the Muscle Shoals online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Blues Architect

I first read about the Muscle Shoals recording studio on the back of an album of Aretha Franklin's greatest hits, and what caught my eye at the time was actually the picture of Duane Allman in the studio with Franklin. Allman worked as a session musican before founding the Allman Brothers Band, and he did much of his session work at the funky little Alabama studio that was turning out R&B hits for Franklin, Wilson Pickett and Percy Sledge.
