Okay, that Asus2 that you hear throughout the song. What position is he (Weir) grabbing it in and the lick, where is it being done?

Caught a glimpse him playing it like:

b--5
g-4
d---7

Plus that sets you up easily for his E walk down to A on the A and E strings there and can easily cop that main riff if needed while stilling being in position!

Strummin',

Dude, that is sweet! Just curious, when you saw him doing that, was it post- Jerry era? Either way, it's a tasty little position and lick, much thanks. Now the bigger fish to fry is getting that vocal on the bridge :)

Wow, man, I don't recall. When I'm learning songs and shit I'm all over youtube so it's hard to say.

What vocal on the bridge? The sung part or arpeggios?
