This is a very pretty instrumental song performed by two steel-string acoustic guitars in the open E tuning, and even though it's stripped down and less "jammy" than The Allman's usual full-band sound, it still has so much of that Southern Rock vibe. You'll learn everything you need to know to be able to play this song by yourself or with another guitar player. After getting into the open E tuning, we'll start with the intro. Then we'll break d...

It's a really cool, 7 minute long instrumental jam song with a very catchy melody, harmonized by two electric guitars.

10: The Holy Grail Of Slide Guitar

This song features some of Duane Allman's most incredible slide playing, and you don't have to be able catch every little detail to learn something from this song. So get your slide out and get ready for some Serious Southern slide guitar playing!

12: A-Section: Guitar 2
13: Fingerstyle: Open E Tuning & Intro
In this first lesson we'll get into the open E tuning and then I'll show you how to play the intro. The open E tuning is E-B-E-G#-B-E (low to high), so the open strings form the classic E major chord from the open position. Then your IV chord will be in the 5th fret and your V chord in the 7th and will sound like the barre chords with the root on the 6th string. If you play along with the record you'll notice the their E is slightly off pitch, so you'll have to tune to them if you wanna do that.
14: A-Section: Guitar 1
Now let me show you how to play the first guitar part in the A-section of this song. If you play this song by yourself this would be the part to play for the A-sections, and it could pretty much carry the section on its own. This part is using some pretty tricky banjo style fingerpicking patterns, but we'll take it 3 or 4 notes at a time, and if you keep trying you'll get it eventually.
15: Instrumental Steel Acoustic: Gear & Tone
For this song you'll need an acoustic guitar with steel strings. If you only have an acoustic guitar with nylon strings that'll work as well, but you'll get a bit of a different vibe. You can even play it on electric if you use a pretty, clean tone and play with your fingers. I'm playing a Martin-style VKV acoustic with a combination of a built-in Fishman pickup and an MXL condenser mic to get the sound you that you hear in this video, and I'm picking with my fingers.
16: B-Section: Guitar 1
Now let me show you how to play the first guitar part in the B-section with the rhythmic hits. In a way you can say that the two guitars switch roles in this section, because guitar 1's part is more of a supporting rhythm part and guitar 2 is playing the more lead sounding part.
17: B-Section: Guitar 2
Now let me show you how to play the second guitar part in the B-section. Since this is more of a lead sounding part you may want to play guitar 2's part for the B-section if you play this song by yourself, and maybe mix it up with certain parts from guitar 1. And since you have learned both parts you can pick and choose.
18: C-Section: Guitar 1
After the B-section that we just broke down, they go back to another A-section. Then they return to a B-section, and finally onto the C-section that we're gonna break down the first part of in this lesson. This is actually the classic A-B-A-B-C song form, even though there are no lyrics. This section comes down dynamically, but it's still super groovy!
19: C-Section: Guitar 2
Now let me show you how to play the second guitar part of the C-section. This part is using the same triads as guitar 1, but on the top 3 strings. You'll notice how well the two parts compliment each other, but if you play this song by yourself you'll most likely want to play guitar 1's part for this section.
20: Ending: Both Guitars
After the C-section that we just broke down, they go back to a verse and then they end the song with the rhythmic harmonics and the following open string arpeggio. This is done by guitar 1, and then guitar 2 comes in with the four open-string harmonics to sweeten the ending.
21: Little Martha: Performance
22: Little Martha: Jam Along for Guitar 1
23: Little Martha: Jam Along for Guitar 2
In this final video, you'll be playing guitar 2's part. We've muted the audio for guitar 2, and you'll hear guitar 1. I hope you've had a lot of fun with this classic instrumental song. Of course, lyrics are great for communicating emotions, telling stories, and presenting imagery to the listener. But good instrumental songs can do that as well, simply from the feeling of the notes, the harmony, the melodies and the attitude and vibe that it's all performed with. Little Martha is a perfect example of that. So have fun with this great tune, and I'll see you around!
