Solo?

Solo?

In the solo what key is he in? It sounds like A blues but at first I thought he was playing over the chords but when I do that it doesn't sound right.

Thanks

The song is sung in A then the jam jumps up 1.5 steps to C.

Very typical bluegrass. Think Midnight Moonlight!

Yikes! We tried to work this up the other night. A much harder song than it would appear. Everyone's timing on this seemed to be different.

Yep. It's ironic 'cause the bluegrass guys all do this in one key. A lot of the Dead's versions I've heard it seemed like they struggled a bit with the change up a minor third.

These guys a really good.


Arthel "Doc" Watson does a nice version too:


Here's a version I did with Scott Fore kinda swingy:
