I think he is an incredible player, and I don't expect him to play just like Jerry. I just wish he'd be more selective with his use of the env. and maybe just play a little more Jerry-ish.

This was at a Gov't Mule show, and I know his rig changes up from ABB, Mule, and The Dead. For example, he uses a soldano head with mule, a Marshall with the Allmans, and he uses a Fender Super Reverb with the Dead.
But I did notice him being a little too excessive with the wah when I was listening to the Satellite broadcast from the Gorge, especially during Althea. (and this is warrenMFKNhaynes talking). However when he wasn't using it, and going for more of a cleaner tone, I thought it sounded great. Not to close to jerry and not to far away from warren. And during stuff like Passenger>Bucket, there was no holding back, all warren.
But still, Warren has only played with the Dead 2 different inconsecutive years, he shouldn't be excpected to be totally in sync with them yet.
But I have the secret on how to make The dead sound 10x better...ready?...LET WARREN SING ALL JERRY'S SONGS!!! Why would Phil honestly believe that he would sound better singing eyes? And Bobby singing Days Between? What??

Eyes is a Jerry-peel-a-thon for sure.
