Watch the Duane Allman Style 2: Open E online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Blues Guitar Greatest Hits Vol. 1

Lesson Source: Andy Aledort's Slide Guitar Power

I begin the "One Way Out" style solo by quickly sliding up to 17th position on the B string, followed by a high A note on the 17th fret of the high E string. After sliding back down the first string and repeating the E note, 2nd string/17th fret, I quickly slide up to the 1st string/20th fret, to sound the minor third of A, C, after which I continue sliding up in C#, the major third, and beyond. Though it may seem imprecise, one's intonation must actually be very precise in order to move smoothly from one specific note to another while taking advantage of the microtonal notes that fall between the frets - a lot of musical expressiveness can be found in one's awareness to the microtones. As I had done in the "Statesboro Blues" style solo, I rely on contrary motion - sliding up one string and then back on another - while alternately picking with the thumb and ring fingers of the pick hand.
