I found a version & transposed the chords to the Dead's version from 7/2/88 and the walk-up is:

G Bb C Eb

It's the rest of the verse I am having trouble with. From what I can gather, it's G & C, but I can't seem to make the strum pattern sound good. I did pick up Jerry's riff during the verse, which is:

e ----------------------
B ----------------------
G ----------------------
D ----------------------
A ---------0--1-1-1-0---
E ---1h3-3--------------



Also, his intro lick is pretty straight forward:

e ----------------
B ----------------
G ----------------
D ----------------
A ---1h3--3-3-3---
E ----------------



If anybody can help with the correct verse chords and/or strum pattern, that'd be great! Who knows, maybe it is just G & C, but something doesn't sound right to me....

Anyways, here's a link to the version I am going off of: http://www.archive.org/details/gd88-07- ... sbeok.shnf

HEY,           WELL I FEEL SO GOOD, EVERY-THING IS GETTING HIGHER.

WE MADE IT BABY AND IT HAPPENED TO YOU. AND I'M,
CHORUS/OUTRO:
G           |Bb      |C           |Eb                 |
  SO GLAD WE MADE IT,   SO GLAD WE MADE IT. I WANT YOU,

GIMME SOME LOVIN',  OO-H.  GIMME SOME LOVIN', GIMME SOME LOVIN' EVERY DA-Y. Repeat and Fade Out

For the rhythm, I just go back and forth on the G and C very deliberately. It takes some practice, but if you listen to the Spencer Davis version instead of the Dead, you get a better feel for the rhythm. Hope this helps!

My 2 cent for this

here's the way I see the brent sometimes jerry intro

----C7---------F---C7--F----C

e---------------------------8---
b---11---------10--11--10---8---
g---12---------10--12--10---9--
d---10---------10--10--10--10--

This is strummed rather furiously. I'm to lazy to type it all out.

I just do a blues riff for the verse. Just the bass E and A shown.


a--10-10-12-12-13-13-12-12-10-10--
E---8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--

The above is the single note representation of this:

--C-C-F-F-C7C7F-F-C-C

b-5-5-6-6-8-8-6-6-5-5-
g-5-5-5-5-9-9-5-5-5-5-
d-5-5-7-7-8-8-7-7-5-5-

EEK.

I did it again- posting chords without an axe in hand.

But these are ALL wrong.

The verse is on C and the walkup is DEFINITELY

C, Eb, F, Ab to C,F for the chorus.

Are you sure about that walk-up? Give a listen to that 7-2-88 show & tell me what you think.

Okay, I'm going out on a limb here for posting at work (read no axe wish my luck TS!)

For the intro....

In E (do this 2 times for the rhythm)
g -5-5-5-5-5---------------
d -5-5-5-5-5---------------
a -7-7-7-7-7----2-----------
e --------------0--------

Lick 2 times again (fuzz effect and maybe some rotary):
g -12-----10-12-10-9-------

That's what I've got!

Ha! Well I've never jammed on it with a show just started plucking one day and voila!

Did they really play it in C? Only the Brent years, yes?

Yup, it was C, which is why it often went into or out of Wheel.

It was one of the two Phil/Brent duet songs of 1984 that signalled the return of Phil's vocals- the other being Do It In The Road. The following year had them trying out Keep On Growing together a few times, and Phil also started backing up Brent on Tons Of Steel, and broke out a solo lead voc on Tom Thumb's, followed in Mar 86 by BOX OF RAIN... a huge moment in my early Deadheadness

I've heard that they actually did play it once after Brent died, in the 90 fall tour, but then that was it. Dunno if Ive ever looked that up.

Tiger, you got me thinkin (generally a rather dangerous proposition for anyone within pissin distance) about how what we've experienced is essentially in a vacuum of our hands on 'deadheadness'. My first show was in '81 and my last in '94. (jer wise that is) and so much of what I think and believe about the dead is seen through that prism, except to the extent that I'm able to objectify that which I can only gather through means other than first hand experience.

I've had so many interesting experiences that are intrinsically related to my 'deadheadness' that it's almost impossible to separate it from other portions of my life, not that I'd need to.

Anyway, this is essentially meaningless drivel more related to the fact that I've consumed 4 healthy Margaritas this evening,than anything else.

You brought back so many thoughts and memories that I've more often than not had not a reason to ponder.

Thanks.

And carry on.

Thanks, TS, for the cool Phil story! I never knew that! Too young to catch the boys in the early 80s and I never knew how Phil got back into it, until now!

Gracias!
