Guitar tabs with lyrics

Stormy Monday as performed by The Allman Brothers Band

This is the version of the song that appears on the At Fillmore East cd.


I've never seen a tab of this song before, and since
every guitarist should know Duane's solo, here it is.

There are two guitar parts: Duane Allman and Dickey Betts.
Duane is playing an SG through a 50 watt Marshall Plexi 1986 bass model.
Dickey plays a Les Paul through a 100 watt Plexi. Both standard tuning on
this song.
The tune starts out with Duane introducing it,
then plays the into:

Duane's solo:
Duane beautifully mixes
major and minor pentatonic scales
in this solo to make it one of my
favorite solos ever
recorded.
