Here's another -- from Gregg's appearance on the Flo & Eddie show:

I really like both of these solo/acoustic performances -- never have cared for the ABB version.

I always loved that version of Come and Go... I did a version of it for a friend and he was blown away. I can't really take much credit, of course, but it was a nice feeling anyway.

Most people don't remember what a good guitar player he is but the Come & Go Blues clip is fantastic. The solo acoustic tracks on One More Try are excellent too. T Bone Burnett commented that recently what a strong rhythm player Gregg is. Said something about be surprised by his playing. i have a radio broadcast from 1974 I believe, where Gregg shows up with a guitar and plays a few songs including a "new" one called "Win, Lose, or Draw." It's incredible even though he is obviously intoxicated. you would never guess he was the a band's keyboard player and not the guitar player. he even plays in different tunings like open G and others. he has said he wrote Melissa by making standard chord shapes on a guitar tuned to open E. apparently Duane had tuned the guitar to E and Gregg didn't know and played a E chord like he would on a standard tuned guitar and he liked how it sounded and built a song. He is such a talented musician and I think that gets lost in the hype and public trials and tribulations. He is a musician to his core. Hopefully the near-death experience got the creative juices flowing again.

What a nice post! Thanks.
I have long wished for a truly SOLO Gregg Allman project -- tour, record -- or just a one-off.

Me too. A solo acoustic album would be awesome. Guitar, piano, and voice. Even Jaimoe has said that some of his favorite memories of Gregg include listening to him sit at the piano and play/sing.

Me too. Danny and Dickey seen walking off? I remember one year at the Beacon, they did an acoustic set, the three of them if I recall correctly. It was lovely.

I know Gregg often refers to his B-3 playing as "the gravy on the meat" -- but one could also say that it frequently serves as the "plate." That distinctive ABB sound is, in part, a result of Gregg's B-3 providing a foundation for the rest of the band: alternately rumbling, churning, rolling, moaning, pumping just below the surface and from time-to-time p-u-n-c-t-u-a-t-i-n-g with a wail or a roar. Not many showy solos but -- oh my -- what a range of sound he gets and how well his choices suit the occasion.

I've always loved his B-3 playing and thought that it really makes the music special. If you hear some ABB tunes played without the the B-3 they sound incomplete. I've watched every show on moogis the last few years and seeing how active Gregg is at the organ is incredible. his hands are always in motion, turning knobs, moving levers, playing notes, making adjustments and it always sounds perfect. he gets the exact tones needed at the right time. he usually manages to sing pretty well too while his arms are moving about hittin' the note. yeah, he goof some lyrics, but he's busy sumbitch behind that B-3 and it sounds great. It goes back to what I said before, he's a musician to his core.

Well, you and I are clearly like-minded on this topic. And your point about singing and playing is one I have noted, as well. Walking and chewing gum at the same time, indeed.
