Duane Allman's Steel Drum Effect

from - RPMTN@aol.com
Duane Allman would place a large plastic pick under the strings near the bridge, thereby keeping them from vibrating. However, when picked, these strings will produce a steel-drum type of sound. I've done this live for years,and it never fails to have some guitar player coming up to me later to ask how it's done. Try it out.
