Subject: tab to Allman Brothers Band -Pony Boy

"Pony Boy" by the  Allman Brothers Band
	  from the album "Brothers and Sisters"

         This song is in open E tuning and I believe
       the right hand part is fingerpicked while the
       the left hand is a combination of open string
       notes, slide guitar and harmonics. You will
       have to listen to the recording to figure it
       out. Here is the tab to the basic parts
       of the song and the rest is up to you as they
       say. My apologies for any errors and if anyone
	has any corrections please email me at
	         dmeta@quadro.net
        This is just a barebones tab as it is hard to
	notate all the slide pulloffs, hammerons,etc.
	but it should give you a general idea to what's
	happening.

Symbols: ~ = slide (shake) tremolo / = slide up to note \ = slide down to note p = pulloff If you don't have the Allman Brothers "Brothers and Sisters" with this song on it, go and buy it, you'll be glad you did. Arlen Roth's book "Traditional, Country and Electric Slide Guitar" published by Oak is a good instruction book for this style of playing.
