Bird Song

Postby mgbills » Thu Jan 26, 2012 8:00 pm

Good Evening Folks,

Anyone know when (specifically) the Bird Song on Reckoning was recorded?

I study with this great jazz guitar teacher who has a fundamental Garcia appreciation. I'm trying to steer my lessons away from quadruple flat 6th's, and improvisations on Blue Monk...to something a little more melodic.

I'm trying to avoid burning a CD & have some comparative year/version things that I'd like to send to him via links to Internet Archive.

Thanks in advance!

Peace
M

Not that you asked, but for my money, 9/12/81 has one of the BOAT latter-day Bird Songs

Both comments were very helpful. I'm going to have to listen to the Reckoning version. I thought the 10-31-80 solo sounded different, but I'll revisit it.

Tigerstrat - Blew my mind. The longer I play GD, the more I love studying rhythm parts. Karma ...I took many a shower during Bobby numbers. Prophet or the Pariah. Cowboy songs equaled showers. Bob's rhythm opener is just stellar. Love this version.
Love it. Love it. I did my first East Coast tour in the spring of that year.

Thanks for sharing that.

Let's just say, if you're standing in front of Bobby at a show, it "Looks Like Rain" when he powers up for the high notes.

I know this is an old post but if you've got a good jazz teacher and want to move away from bebop and the more "outside" stuff you should work on swing tunes - Django and Charlie Christian - Django was a big influence on Jerry and that stuff relates more to the melody than some of the stuff from the late 50s-70s.

Sorry Seamones for not replying.

I remember shows on both Coasts that had shower points. I remember in the humid Northeastern US, I shower from a chunk of PVC pipe could be the best thing in the whole world. So...Bobby would play "Looks Like Rain"...and I head for the head...or to the showers. Again & Again...stuff like that. Just a little break in the action to cool the brain.

Long days gone.
