Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Blue Sky  The Allman Brothers Band

Blue Skies
Words and music by Gregg & Duane Allman & Dicky Betts
From the album, "Eat A Peach"
Lyrics and chords transcribed by unknown author,
Solo transcribed and typed by Scott Zeunik; scott@zeunik.com
Notes:
This solo by Duane is one of my alltime favorites; and although he played this,
along with Dicky, masterfully using his slidework, I've written it here without
the use of a slide. It may not be 100% accurate, but I bet it's 99%+. I hope you
enjoy it, it took me 25-30 hours to figure out, literally, and 2-3 to transcribe.
Please listen to the recording to get the proper feel for the timing.
