Song:  Old Friend

Artist: Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers)

Tabbed By:  Mjagg

Date Submitted: 3-10-13 


This is an awesome song that Warren recorded with Derek Trucks on the Allman Brothers album, 
Hittin' The Note.  This tab however is for one of Warrens 
solo performances of the song.  Please note that there are at least a 
dozen different videos on youtube of Warren playing this song, and they 
are all played slightly different.  I'll put a link to the video that this 
is tabbed from.  That way you can hear what the licks are supposed to sound like.
This song is played by strumming open chords and using a slide.  It's a fairly simple 
song, the hardest part being getting the slide parts down if you're not comfortable with 
playing slide. Please note the Double Drop D tuning.

**I couldn't figure out how to write this particular lick out in tab.  
  If you're familiar with the song, you'll know what it's supposed to 
  sound like.  If not, watch the video.
