Chord progression

Hey y'all

Trying to figure out what the 2nd to last chord in this song is....the chord I speak of is where i have the "G?". On that Jerry Garcia Tab Site that's listed here on the main page, it says the chord is a G, but I don't hear that....anywasy, here's how I see it:

Code: Select all
Little Sadie

Dm            F       (C)          Dm
Went out last night to take a look around
C                      *C     *B  Am
Met little Sadie and I blowed her down
Am         C     Am      C
Went right home, went to bed
G?                            Dm
Forty-four smokeless under my head

* - SN


So the chord in question is the "G?". Maybe a G7?Also not sure about that first "C", which is why I put it in parentheses.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I always play it with fmaj7 instead of F. I also don't finger a C the second time, but play the Am with hammer-ons on the C note on the A string at the 3rd fret.

Also, a nice touch at the end of the verse ("44 smokeless...")is to play an A at the second fret (open A) and then finger an F and slide it up to the 5th fret (to the A) and end by moving to the Dm on the 5th fret also. Hope this makes sense as it's kinda tough for me to tab out.

For a nice look at this song on DVD, check out Doc Watson's DVD from Homespun called Flatpicking with Doc. He's incredible and the DVD is great.

By george, it definitely is A7 in the open position! Then walk up to the Dm with bass notes A-C-D.
