Play Like Duane Allman
In this course you’ll learn how to play Stormy Monday slow blues guitar in the style of Duane Allman. Running time 2 hours.
In 1971 The Allman Brothers released Live at the Fillmore East which many claim to be the greatest Live Album ever released. I would have to agree with that as this album completely changed how I approached playing the guitar.
In fact, back in 1993 I started taking lessons from Michael Farrington in Mobile Al who told me this at my first lesson,
“Go out and buy Live at the Fillmore East by the Allman Brothers and learn as much as you can from it. If you do this you’ll be an awesome guitar player!”
Immediately after this lesson I drove to Peaches Music in Mobile Al and picked up a copy and that album completely changed the way I thought about playing guitar. It’s just an amazing live album and the slow blues that is on there blew me away from the first listen. It was unlike anything I have ever heard before and I wanted to learn it!
Fast forward nearly 23 years later and I want to show you what I’ve learned about this classic tune that is in my opinion one of the top 5 best slow blues tunes.

In 2008 Gibson recognized me as an expert for teaching the Duane Allman slide guitar style. 10 years later I think I have learned quite a deal more about his playing since then and that’s the info I have put into this course.
