Lesson notes

Midnight Rider is an acoustic classic by Gregg Allman and Robert Payne, first released on The Allman Brothers second album Idlewild South in 1970. It has become one of their most popular, and most covered tunes. This lesson looks at the intro, main riff accompaniment, chord progression, an acoustic adaptation of the solo, a way of working it out in an altered tuning (Double Dropped D), and a bit of the variations Gregg Allman added on his solo release Laid Back.
