Little martha

Duane Allman


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)
