First of all I am not hearing any 7ths. All bar chords using the A position or slide. Also, I never slide up into the A chord, it is always played into by doing the D C A chord thing

Using primarly the D and G strings indicated it goes something like this

s7 5 2 2 ------- (2x)
5s6s7 7 ------- (2x)
7 5 2 2 ------
s7 5 2 -----
7s8s9 9 ---
8s7 7---
7 5 2 2-----

and now to try and answer your question
Jerry is playing in the usual suspect A mixo or D scale.
something like this


the key to playing the slide appears to be taking your time and sounding each note and not trying to place to much. Jerry lets it rip when he plays his lead without the slide.

speaking of slides, what is the best way to play a slide...i have messed around with it a bit and it sounds like crap...should i be using a glass or steel slide? does my guitar have to be tuned differently...what is the story?

thanks for any suggestions.
