yes , it does still sound like jerry, but it still is missing the tone of jerry. that's elvis costello's guitar and rig.


excited over the book, thanks for dropping the info.

I think that bar just closed last year or something.
Ever see the Sammy Hagar and Jerry one where they are doing Going Down ?

I remember hearing that on a tape, many years ago. Is Jerry playing through a Marshall on that one?

Just a guess but I remember seeing some stills from this secession and I think it's The Sweetwater in Mill Vally, CA. Dig this link what a crowd that's played through there...

Yeah Thats what I thought but the vid is identified as a club in Conn though.
And the vid was posted by a guy going by the same name as the club - maybe the owner?
I couldnt find the Mill Valley Hagar vid - I wonder what the chances are that Hagar Garcia Costello would be in two clubs on opposite sides of the country at the same time ?
What do you think ?

I have cd's of this gig, soundboards I think, and it's pretty interesting line-up. It was a benefit for the place, if I recall correctly, and they're just having a blast.

Maybe it's just me :D, but all I care about is what Jer's up to in this video. Terrible song to display his talents, by the way. For some reason, every time you get a bunch of guys jammin', the chords are as basic as it gets. Still, nice to see a bunch of guys get together to play a song, and because it is such a different environment, you see them in a different light. All Jerry is in this setting is just another guy up on stage, about to participate in an impromptu jam. He steals the show nonetheless. :cool:

I've seen the Goin' Down video, I think he was playing through a JC-120 from what I recall.

I couldn't disagree more, to see Jerry play next to one of the all time great players James Burton, and see how differently they approach the same music in the same context is well really something special.
Yoou know great art is sometimes very simple, look at Miles Davis "kind Of Blue" and heck most Van Gogh looks like a child painted it,
sure the riffs sound like they came straight from I need a miracle, but hey thats why we love Jer
peace out! :roll:

Comparing the two guitarists, Jerry Garcia vs. James Burton, I once again feel justified in always trying to learn Garcia's style instead of just learning how to play.

astroman99, what exactly is your disagreement again? I'm only facinated with Garcia in this setting and should be interested in the others? From start to finish, I found myself wishing the cameraman would stay on Jerry all the time. Sort of selfish on my part, but, well... :D

Anyway, just trying to stir up this thread. :x Things are kind of slow here these days. :-?

I think this is the nature of playing with people who you aren't accustomed to playing with, and who's styles somoetimes differ greatly. Sometimes it comes across great, other times not.

I always thought that most people that sat in with the Dead didn't sound good. The one notable exception that comes to mind is Branford. I'm sure there were other good ones too, but there were some train wrecks too.

Anyone ever catch the train wreck of Pete Townshend playing with the dead - may have been a Rockpalast show? He was awful. Bobby's in the back trying to coach him through Wharf Rat and Pete's throwing in his traditional rock power chords.
