In this tutorial you'll learn how to play the great acoustic tune "Little Martha", as made famous by The Allman Brothers Band. 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 down both guitars in the A-sections, the rhythmic hits in the B-section and both guitar parts of the C-section.

We're gonna talk about what gear to use, the song form and much more. The song is in 4/4 and performed without a metronome, but the quarter note is somewhere around 180 bpm, so let's get to work!
