Duane Allman – Little Martha
Playing notes:
This instrumental is played in open E tuning ([ E B E G# B E]).
Rather than tuning the 3rd, 4th and 5th strings up (which can
Be really stressful on the neck), you can tune down to open D
([ D A D F# A D]) and capo at the second fret.
The thumb keeps time with a monotonic bass line while the
Fingers play the melody. The structure of the tune is:
1 - Intro
2 - Part 1 ending with (1.)
3 - Repeat Part 1 ending with (2.)
4 - Part 2
5 - Repeat Part 1 up until (To Coda)
6 - Coda

Intro:
