Furthur does it in the same key the Dead did. A lot of the online tabs are incorrect, because people want to try to play it with easier chords. Sack up and play the E flats :shock:

From memory without a guitar handy:

Intro is D sus 4 to D, then down to a C

Verse is E flat B flat F D minor
E flat B flat F
E flat B flat F D minor
F C B flat


Chorus 1 is Gm C A Dm B flat F Eflat
Gm C A Dm B flat F Eflat D sus 4 C

Chorus 2 is Gm C A Dm B flat F E flat
Cm A Dm Gm Bflat F E flat D sus 4 C

Absolutely love this song. First time I saw John Play this was with DSO a little over a year ago. I was on my way out of the show at the end and they did this as a filler. One of those songs that stop you in your tracks.

Furthur does basically the same version as DSO and yes, they killed it in Fairfax.

If anybody had the lead tabbed out, that would be great.

No tab hear but when I think about So many Roads I think of Richfield 92 and Boston Garden 94.

Garden 94
