Watch the Allman See-Saw Lick online guitar lesson by Geoff Hartwell from Guitar Lab: Electric Slide
This takes you back to the Fillmore with a lick that combines our “See-Saw” principles with a little extra mojo from Brother Duane. We’re starting with familiar territory and adding another principle that will shake things up a bit. Pay careful attention to how to phrase the slide up to the 15th fret position, and the muting before you return to the 12th fret position. Remember that your plucking hand is responsible for all of your articulation, and that means that you need to control HOW you play the things that you intend. Duane Allman’s approach retained all the fire and passion of the classic Slide Guitar Masters, but it was also a great leap forward in terms of precision, largely due to his plucking hand technique. For inspiration, listen to the Allman Brothers Band “At Fillmore East”.
