Album: Hittin’ the Note
Song: Firing Line
Written by Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes

This song is awesome. It’s a real hard rock song with tons of riffs that say Allman
all over them.
It also has two solos, one on slide by Derek Trucks with his Gibson ’61 Reissue SG in
E and one
by Warren Haynes with his Gibson ’58 Reissue ES-335. Sorry, I use standard tuning for
so you’re
going to have to figure out Derek’s slide solo for yourself, but I have Warren’s solo
out. The song is in the key of E7.

Pre-Chorus 1x

Here is a harmony part with both guitars (I know one of them is in open E, but try both
with standard first) Play around with them a little bit. It sounds nice with both played
but in the real song the pre-chorus is played then Guitar 1, the pre-chorus again, and
Guitar 2.

Guitar 1 Guitar 2

E ------------------------------ E ------------------9-10-12-14---|
B -----------------7-8-10-12---- B ------7-8-10-12----------------|

The song fades out on the 2nd harmony part. I hope you enjoyed my first tab. Play around
and have fun playing. Questions and comments about the Allman Brothers, my tab, guitars
jazz, blues, classic rock, and the origins of heavy metal are welcome.
