Ramblin’ Man Solo

Today we are going to look at the 1st solo to Ramblin’ Man by the Allman Brothers. The tuning for this solo is a 1/2 step up. So either tune up or play everything one fret higher. The solo uses a G major scale.

The tab for this song is from Fender Players Club. Along with the tab they have given the solo played at a slower speed. You can listen to it here: Ramblin’ Man (Slow)

There are a few tricky parts to this solo. To start off make sure you play the first note with your middle finger. When you slide up the fingering will be very awkward if you start with your index finger. The next weird fingering is in measures 4-5. Once again play the slides with your middle finger. That way you’re free to play the notes on the E and B strings with your index and ring fingers. Finally in measure 12, play the slide with your middle finger just like the beginning.
