Allman Duane – Little Martha tab

Subject: Re: Duane Allman Song Needed?

Where did you see Leo Kottke live? If I could see just one of his live
shows and/or his video, I could die and go to heaven with a smile.
Anyways, the song you're after is "Little Martha" and is archived from
Nevada. The 'Eat A Peach' version is actually Duane on an open-E tuned
acoustic and Dicky Betts playing back-up chords on a standard tuned
acoustic. I haven't yet been able to hear Leos' version mainly 'cause I
can't yet afford the CD. Try this for "Little Martha":

                        Little Martha
                     by: Duane Allman

  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

Chords used:  numbers in grid indicate frets
              numbers in parentheses are suggested fingerings
(1=index,2=middle,etc)
