Its kinda ghostly/jazzy to me. DT plays like etta james/mahalia jackson sings
That's because he grew up wanting to play like Duane. Duane always strove to reproduce the sounds that old 50s black female rnb and gospel singers made.
Remember Derek's uncle is Butch Trucks one of the drummers and founding members of ABB. Derek was bred to be the second coming of Duane Allman. And he is living up to that pressure better than any one could ever be expected to.
