This is one of those songs like that sounds like an easy, layed back blues jammer song on the surface.
When you look deeper into it, you find it is not that typical comfort zone you think it is at first. But if you practice and learn how to play over
it you will discover a whole new blues style of playing. The chords to this song sets the stage for some unique phrasing. Hats off to those in the Allman Brothers that composed this gem!

Same as E chord diagramEE just move it up the 12th fret.

Playing solos:
Through verses play D chord diagramDD major five note scale and D chord diagramDD Mixolydian 7 note scale.
The D chord diagramDD major notes are in the D chord diagramDD mixolydian scale but it is not at hard as it sounds.
For those use to playing that common five note minor blues scale (the first thing we learn and sometimes the only thing).
Move your five note minor scale down 3 frets. Basically the same notes you play for a B chord diagramBB minor five note scale is the D chord diagramDD major 5 note scale.
For this song you are going to want to mix in the other two notes to make a 7 note scale. But instead of playing the minor notes of
the B chord diagramBB minor scale you want to flatten one note. The C# chord diagramC#C# to a C chord diagramCC.  So the boxes you want to visualize playing are your five note B chord diagramBB minor
scale and your 7 note E chord diagramEE minor scale.
The proper term for this is D chord diagramDD mixalydian but those root key is D chord diagramDD not E chord diagramEE.
If you know just your minor scales only, like most learning guitarist then you kind of already know the boxes. Just remember your B chord diagramBB minor 5 note boxes
 and E chord diagramEE minor 7 note boxes and you will be in the zone.

When the chorus changes come into effect try changing to your E chord diagramEE Minor 5 note scale through the (G7 chord diagramG7G7, F7 chord diagramF7F7 E7 chord diagramE7E7#9) part and the Am chord diagramAmAm scale on the
(C7 chord diagramC7C7, A#7 chord diagramA#7A#7, A7 chord diagramA7A7#9).
