Funky Intro in '72

Funky Intro in '72

Postby DenverEd » Sat May 05, 2007 12:28 pm

The intro in 1972 versions had a little more than just E7 and D. Anyone know what gives it that extra pop?

this is how the one from field trip 8-27-72 is done. My favorite also.
E|----------------------------------------
B|----------------------------------------
G|----------------------------------------
D|-------------4-----------7--4--7--------
A|-------4--5-----7--5--7-----------7-----
E|--4/7-----------------------------------

What makes it different is stayin on that B at the end instead of D to E for the last two notes its B to E. He doesnt do this in any other show ive heard though.

All I know is something like a bird within her sang,

All I know she sang a little while and then flew off,
Bb   F      C                   G                 D7     
Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain.

If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why?
Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin' by,
Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night.

Bm        A    G     D   A    G     D   A      G              D
Don't cry now, don't you cry, don't you cry anymore, la-da-da-da.
Bm           A      G     D   A    G   D    A           G              D  D7
Sleep in the stars, don't you cry, dry your eyes on the wind, la-da-da-da-da.

All I know is something like a bird within her sang,
All I know she sang a little while and then flew off,
Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain.
Here's my way of playing Bird Song in D.

I am talking about the chord part. If you listen to intro from the Dick's Pick version from 9/27/72, there is some really cool stuff being done around the E7 chord - I just can't quite figure it out.

I don't have that show but on 9/26/72 I hear an A thrown in with the E, E7sus2 & E7 - a little like this

--E7-E7-E7-A-E-E7-E7
----sus2------sus2
e-7-7-7-7------7--7---
b-9-9-7-9-10-9-7--9---
g-7-7-7-7--9-9-7--7---
d-9-9-9-9-11-9-9--9---

I don't know if that notation is right, E7sus2 - maybe E7/9?

This also may not be what was played the next night but I'm taking a shot that it was.

Billx2 nice tab, I don't have the show handy to compare it to but sounds mighty nice either way. I was under the impression that they played this tune on the album and early 70's shows in the key of D and changed to E when they changed the band around in 79. Your tabbing a show from '72 and have it in the key of E. Were all the live versions of this song in E?

Thanks ronster. I actually was streaming the show I tabbed from archive.org. I know they played it in both D & E but not sure how the different era's/acoustic vs electric factored in. I almost always play it in E cause I just have to be able to romp on that bass E throughout. Another thought - I haven't tuned my guitar in a while and it was totally in tune with the audio. Not likely I was that far out or the recording was that fast. Didn't think to check out any other tunes on that show for comparison.

Bill
Try using a dropped D tuning (tune your low E sting to D) and play it in D. You can tear up leads and chords on the 7th and 9th fret while smacking the open D and A low strings until your fingers blead. What a hoot.
Played hockey tonight, drank some beers, and came home and wailed on that for 1/2 an hour. What a great time to be alive. :cool:

The version on 9/21/72 is pretty close to the one later that week. I hear an E7 to start then a slide from D#7 back to E7 then I can't quite figure out what the next little ditty that gets played.

Could be wrong comparing to your version but going by the Field Trip version (8/27/72) he is goin from D7 to E7 no D#7. So he will start on E7 then go to D7 then slide into the E7 and sometimes then he will add the A note to the E7. Not sure what chord that would make though. Anyone know? It would be:
x
7
9
7
10
7

Overall to my ears I strongly here overtones of complimenting the E major chord with other chords specifically ones with both a D and B.

I'd suggest playing with this first then read on.

Verses I play with
E > E7 or
E > D or
E > D6

Now talking jamming...
E, E7, D, D6, E9, Ddim7
