Watch the Allman's Fillmore - 1 online guitar lesson by Will Sophie from 50 Southern Rock Licks You MUST Know
One of the classics of the Southern Rock era is of course 'Live at the Fillmore East' from 1971 by the Allman Brothers Band. Of all the songs on that particular live album, where themes and improvisations are flowing into each other, the 6/8 rhythms often have an extra edge. The drum patterns often use accents and counter rhythms, as the double lead parts unfold by Dickey Betts and Duane Allman. These kinda songs mostly have a natural sounding jazz influence within their structure. This next progression features this syncopated double lead approach as well as some jazz based arpeggios on a 6/8 blues form. Lick nr 3 is part 1.
