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

Duane Allman may have done more to absorb, transmute and reframe B.B. King's major/minor pentatonic approach than any other 1960s rock musician. While Allman's reputation rests on his peerless slide guitar work, his non-slide playing was equally expressive and innovative and did what 1960s rock did at its best: take the language and emotional content of the blues and recast it in a more contemporary form.
