Watch the Duane Allman online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone

Howard Duane Allman was born in 1946 and died in a tragic motorcycle accident in 1971, he was 24 years old. There are not many players in a generation like him, whose style is so well formed and so refined at such an early age. Hendrix, Clapton, and Van Halen come to mind as players with such a clear voice of their own when they hit the scene. It is no wonder why Duane still rates as one of the best players to grace the instrument.
