Subject: tab to Allman Brothers Band -Pony Boy

"Pony Boy" by the  Allman Brothers Band
	  from the album "Brothers and Sisters"

         This song is in open E tuning and I believe
       the right hand part is fingerpicked while the
       the left hand is a combination of open string
       notes, slide guitar and harmonics. You will
       have to listen to the recording to figure it
       out. Here is the tab to the basic parts
       of the song and the rest is up to you as they
       say. My apologies for any errors and if anyone
	has any corrections please email me at
	         dmeta@quadro.net
        This is just a barebones tab as it is hard to
	notate all the slide pulloffs, hammerons,etc.
	but it should give you a general idea to what's
	happening.

	Verse 2:
	Band is jumpin' and so am I
	I'm just groovin' can't stop movin'
	Barman's got that old, evil eye
	Well he's just waitin' cause we're celebratin'

        Chorus:

	Guitar and Piano solo:-too much for me to tab but
	           a few hints. Call and answer licks are
                   on the E chord centered around 3rd and
                   twelfth fret.

	Verse 3:
	Look out the door beside that tree
	That's my pony lookin' after me
	Front feet doin' the shuffle back feet too
	Love them good old Georgia Blues

	Chorus:

	Ending:

	Symbols:  ~ = slide (shake) tremolo
                  / = slide up to note
                  \ = slide down to note
                  p = pulloff

	If you don't have the Allman Brothers "Brothers
		 and Sisters" with this song on it, go
                and buy it, you'll be glad you did.
        Arlen Roth's book "Traditional, Country and Electric
                   Slide Guitar" published by Oak is a good
                   instruction book for this style of playing.
