Hey
Anyone do this one ?
Me and the peps are bashing it about.
We have a disagreement over how the " Going down the line" part goes. Especially the the last " going down the line " part.
F ///C///G///C/// then F///C///Am// ... so is the next part the quick C/A/D/G/C/F/C ?
We all have slightly different arrangements. The version I play to is the STEAL YOUR FACE version
The local tab sites arent settling the matter.
What do you guys do with your bands ?
:hail:

Chorus=
||: F /// | C/// | G/// | C/C7/ | F/// | C/ A/| D/ G/ | C // rest |

Also since you guys are digesting this song the solo passing chords on the verses hold longer and don't switch back as quickly as they do in the verses.

It should. You have my official seal of approval, money back guarantee on this one.
(because I played it wrong for let's just call it 7 years most of which was on stage)
(however at least I wasn't alone as most of my bandmates were doing it wrong too!)

But i was undone when I passed some sheet music around ....
Not realizing at all that it was a bit different than my version ...

deadstein confuses me:

Verse 1 | C / / / | % | F / / / | C / / / | % | % | G / / / | % |

| C / / / | % | F / / / | C / / / | C A D G | C / F C |

Well this job I've got is just a little too hard,

Running out of money, Lord, I need more pay.

Gonna wake up in the morning Lord, gonna pack my bags,

I'm gonna beat it on down the line.



Break 1 | F / / / | % | C / / / | % | G / / / | % | C / / / | % |

| F / / / | % | C / / / | Am / / /| C A D G | C / F C |

I'm goin' down the line (goin down the line)

Goin' down the line (goin down the line)

Goin' down the line (goin down the line), Beat it on down the line.

No A minor anywhere in Beat it on down the line. Those are all A7's, dominant chords with a distinct tritone in there. Classic swing and jazz turnaround stuff.

TJ - at the end of the chorus C// rest you can also kick in a quick passing Csus4 or F if you are really quick!

It should confuse you . DS is wrong. Seems like they are counting the rhythm and not the beats.

Also that Am is not correct. IMO a I & V is all that 's needed there. Maybe a VII not a iii.

And the chorus ended does not equal the verse ending. FACT.

I don't get when the | C A D G | is strummed, or the timing for it.

The turnaround chords for Garcia are all 7ths C7,A7,D7,G7....

Here's a tasty nugget of how his use of arpeggios outlines the 7ths nicely. This would be ala 73'-ish



E|--11/12----------10\9--------9--------5--8--5-------------7--5--3----------------------------------------
B|---------11------------8--------6--7-----------6b(7)---------------3-------------------------1--5------
G|-------------12-----------9--------------------------6/7--------------4-------------0-----2-----3-----
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------3-------2-----3--------5--------
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------2/3--------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yup, no minor chords in this song... that Am should be an A7, and... whoa yeah kinda fubar.

Try this for that last line of the chorus:
| F / / / | F7 /// | C / / / | A7 / / /| D7 / // | G ///| C / F / |C * * * |

*= 1/4 rest, where he goes "I wan'chew to ROCK ON!" before the solo on 4/29/71 (smo :smile: ....kin' :smile: :smile:)
