"Whipping Post" Words and Music by Gregg Allman as performed by The Allman
Brothers Band.


*My transcription can be used in addition to the one submitted by Mike
detail, but putting Mike's and mine together will probably give everyone a
more complete picture of how to play this song.  There is also bass tab

h = hammer on     ^          |             / = slide up       \ = slide down
p = pull off      | = bend   V = release   ~~~~ = vibrato     N.C. = no chord

INTRO (bass guitar)
|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------3h5-3---|
|-3h5-5p3h5-3h5-5p3h5-3h5-5p3h5-------5-| repeat

The guitars join.  First, one doubles the bass line.  Then the other does this.

FIRST VERSE
(chord progression: guitars, organ)
A  Bm  C  Bm
I've been run down.
I've been lied to.
And I don't know why I let that mean woman make me a fool.
She took all my money.
Wrecked my new car.
And now she's with one of my good time buddies drinking in some cross town bar.

PRE-CHORUS
                            ^full (release silent)

|--------------------8-10----------10-8--------------|

|-----------4-5--------------------------------------|
|-5---8----------------------------------------------|
  sometimes I feel (lead fill in Am [I use this one])

  sometimes I feel (again, one fill I use)

                CHORUS

|---------------7--------5-7--5----------|

 Like I've been tied to the whipping post

A (strum and mute)
Oh Lord I feel like I'm dying.

full unison bends* and releases(organ)   (guitar)
                               These organ and guitar parts kind of overlap
GUITAR SOLO
(rhythm same as VERSES)
(in the key of Am.  [try Am pentatonic, A aeolian, C ionian, D dorian, etc.])

SECOND VERSE
(music same as FIRST VERSE)
My friends tell me
That I've been such a fool
And I have to stand by and take it, babe all for loving you.
I drown myself in sorrow.
Cause I look at what you've done.
But nothing seems to change.  The bad times stay the same, and I can't run.

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

GUITAR SOLO

Then we encounter this two octave run of the A aeolian mode
