Kenny,

Somewhere I grabbed some helpful licks you wrote for Dark Star, and you said come back here and post if this helped you at all.

It certainly did, thank you very much, but I can't find that orginal post. You have been very helpful here, but I got a question:

There seems to be alot of activity here but not on the boards for the actual songs themselves, so should I post stuff here or after the songs themselves?

Example: I wasn't happy with the tab provided for Dark Star, the main lick especially, and figured out what I thought it was (with some help from you first). I'm not putting down the tab itself, it just doesn't seem like the same lick that I hear in '69, it might work for later Dark Stars or something.

Code: Select all

I played along with this many, many times to see if I was correct. The main part that I got this from was when Jerry finally played the main lick starting at 1:37 on this particular show.

The second repeat of the lick reappears at 9:32 and the first one I figured out just doesn?t sound right so I started looking for a place lower on the neck to play it and found the second one.
