Allman Brothers - Whippin Post tab

From: mduncan@ag.Arizona.EDU (Mike Duncan)

   This is just mostly the first verse, but it gives an idea of the 
song's structure. I didn't like either one of the guitar solos so I 
didn't hack at them. They're in Am, of course. I include the bass line at 
some points.
   The chords are at Nevada but this elaborates further. Additions more 
than welcome.

Then it goes back to the verse bit, then to the first guitar solo. If anybody wants to do the rest, feel free to post onto this.
