Watch the Duane Allman online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
I love how we associate someone name with their tone, "I'm looking for a Duane Allman sound". That may mean a style of playing but it often means the kind of guitar sound that player has. Duane had a thick tone but not too distorted, similar to many classic players. Fairly heavy in the mids which is characteristic of the type of Marshall amp he was using, this tone really helps cut through a mix.
