    My friend Jim and I take on a Grateful Dead classic in my classroom after school yesterday- it’s my first time humbly trying to incorporate some Garcia-style into my playing, so be gentle with me! Hope you like it!

    Very nice great homage to Jerry on guitar and vocals...

    I do similar Garcia/Grisman, GD, or Grisman/Tony Rice tunes, playing duo with either bass or mandolin buddies or with larger acoustic groups.

    But something about the space and air in a duo I just love.

    This is like ' acoustic soul' music to me- plus fun to pick, improvise for any one-

    Nice job! You got the feel of it. Slower tunes like that are a challenge! ALL melody!

    Remember the "Musta been the doses" T-shirts?! :D

    Well done sir! Nice, easy feel. Sounds like you've been playin' that tune for years. Please post some more as you do them. Very enjoyable.
