extra frets and all. Hit that hi E on NFA.
I wonder how Rick Turner added frets, did he extend the neck tenon? How can you splice a neck and make it longer? I'm so confused!
As long as this thread popped up again, today is the 40th anniversary of my second Dead show, the best concert of any type of my life. Eugene, OR, Mac Court, the Close Encounters show, recently released as Dave’s Picks #23. Amazing show. I remember it like it was yesterday...
I just snapped this pic of my daughter leaving for school, she's adopted my old jacket!
I'm a "casual" Deadhead. When I was in college I had a friend who had a big collection of reel-to-reel tapes, and he'd play them with a running commentary of this one was here and that one was there, Phil did this and Garcia did that, and here comes the Dark Star. . . . Through my friend and his stories I got the Deadhead experience vicariously, aided sometimes by, well, never mind.
In about 1976 I saw the Dead at the Oakland Coliseum, double-billed with The Who. It was funny, the crowd changed over completely between the two acts. I moved to Oregon in 1977, and saw them two or three times at Autzen Stadium after that. I have several records and a few CDs, and I've remained fond of listening to them ever since.
The Grateful Dead gave me my first exposure to the music of Hank Williams ("You Win Again") and Merle Haggard ("Mama Tried"), both of whom became important writers for me after my divorce a little later.
Dead and Company will be in Eugene in June. I'd like to go, but might be elsewhere. My wife is not a fan, so I'd prob'ly have to go by myself.
Edit: I just had a sense of deja vu, and realized maybe this is a pretty old thread, and maybe I've told this story before. . .och, tamale!
I was in her room a few days ago and noticed she had Neil Young - After the Goldrush on her turntable.
I'm so proud of her!
Pretty sure I heard @Marc Muller yesterday on The Golden Road.
I'm listening to the show on their archive site, and yes Marc is on the show. I sure would love to see one of his shows!
Very cool. I know the videos he posts are top rate.
I attended a very fine show at some semi-open-air amphitheater not far outside of Detroit. 1979, '80...?

Great show, as I recall. Maybe memory has invented this, but there was indeed a summer shower during "Looks Like Rain." "Stella Blue" was even more soulful than usual. And there was that lovely girl in the cowboy hat....
Many a seasoned deadhead will tell you Jerry and the boys could make it rain...
Here's a fantastic show in the rain, 6-20-83, Merriweather Post Pavilion.
I was at the Richfield Colosseum 24 years ago tonight....
I took a pic of the Colosseum site when I drove home from work tonight.....
I used to have a great audience tape of that show, with Phil Bombs going off amongst the thunderclaps - like he was jamming with God... One of the best AUD tapes I ever had...
I’m putting my autocad skills to good use again....
I boarded the bus in 1970. Attended about 50 GD shows, and another 10-15 JGB shows. NRPS with Garcia twice.
I ignored most of the Brent era.
Finally, I was blessed with the good fortune of seeing all three of the Fare Thee Well shows in Chicago in 2015, especially since I got to take my then 25 year old son. I'm pretty sure he came out of his mother's womb whistling Scarlet Begonias. Or was it China Cat?
