I have played this in various electric bands over the years and now I've come full circle I wanted to arrange it for acoustic instruments. I am playing banjo (starting out) Kidd is on banjo, bass, drums, R guitar.

This is terrific! What an accomplishment. This must have taken a lot of time and effort to get all that lead work down. I'm playing this for my fellow band members--skeptics all, when it comes to the banjo's potential. Thanks.

Thanks John - yeah, it took about 2 months, between the long distance challenges and my tight schedule. If it makes anyone less skeptical about the banjo's potential then great - that was one of our goals!

That's a fine job. Great dynamics, pacing, and inventiveness.
Helps that it happens to be one of my favorite Allman Bros. songs.)

I would have never thought of doing this tune on banjo, just brilliant, my favorite version of this tune was the version Dixie Dregs did, but this goes right up there, this is really a banjo classic!

Brother, Dickey Betts doesn't have anything on you! That has got to be the most creative adaptation to the banjo I've ever heard. One of my all time favorite songs. Absolutely wonderful! Thanks a million for posting.
