The rhythm chords for the verses are the same chords used in the intro
above. Listen to the recording as there are slight variations in the
way this funky rhythm is achieved. I have placed the chord names at
the spot where the chord changes occur.
Also, for the chorus I have included an optional harmony line. When I
perform this tune with my band "Rock Slide" my other guitarist plays
this line. The Allman Brothers added this line in several of their
live performances as well. I have noted the left hand fingering at
the bottom of each passage. In order to play the lines cleanly you
pretty much need to use all four left hand fingers. (At least I do)

At this point the rhythm guitar repeats the intro chord thing leading
into the first guitar solo.
