Your tabs are upside down.
Your explanations are irrational
You come in here bitching about somebody being wrong and then bitch some more when somebody says you are wrong.

Nice.

Ooh! Ooh! (with hand raised in the air like Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter) Can I play? Ooh! Ooh!

Your tab is awful! Don't you know jery played this finger style?

Check my vid in video instruction for how it's really played!

The tab/s is/are upside down? Oh, haha ok. Sounds better the other way around but I still like the way it sounds as it's given on the Rukind tab.

And why is it awful exactly? Its not that far off from what you have(though it is the right way up) and besides, when it comes to music of the Dead is it really THAT important to play it note by note? Where does improvisation come in?

Not sure if you know this or not but the dead are notorious for switching things up. So who's to say you're right? Hell Ive never even heard a version that sounds like yours. So to ME, notice the me not to everyone, yours looks out of place.

I am sure you're not trying to be an asshole, but your tab and the tab on this site only differ in one note, thats hardly enough-a reason to call it awful...I've seen tabs that do no justice to the song at all and this tab here isn't one of them.

I do want to say this......at least ya came back and answered up......not sure I have seen a good answer, but.....

I certainly don't mind someone offering a different interpretation, and there are plenty of folks who can attest to the fact that I have, on a number of occassions, said, "Yes, that is closer and better than what I have posted".

I think the point here is that there is a way to do it, and a way not to do it. And I hope that you can tell by the tone of many of the responders (myself included) that perhaps the way you came at it wasn't the best way.

I haven't tried to evaluate what you have tabbed out versus what I have posted, but it looks similar, and I don't think that it is so vastly different from what I have to warrent the description "horrible".

im gonna go ahead and apologize for gratefulpat and his ignorant and annoying remarks, :mad: and btw this site doesnt give you any exact transcriptions for any solos or anything it just gives u the basis to feed off of it, and gives u the tools u need to be creative in ur own right, not always copying exactly whats already been done

so i just want to thank the administrators for putting this wonderful resource together and by the way, for each person like gratefulpat their are a hundred of us that are GRATEFUL for this site

I'd have to sit down and search all my GDTRFB's... but I agree with someone else's point earlier... I believe Garcia always finger-picked this... which would lead me to believe there is not one accurate tab of the lead lick on this site aside from the video instruction (which I can't actually view from work)
