I just hear Jer playing D to G at the 10th fret, back and forth. (EU '72) This when Weir is doing the note solo. When Weir goes to the hard chords at the end of his solo, I don't know, but I would guess Jer is just on hold, and then he comes in with something memorized, worked out already, and the transition takes place and gets done.

I'll try to give it a listen/watch today as my travels allow.
Off the top of my head...
I think this passage is an example of Jer's famous "single note rhythm guitar playing".
You know the Jerry intro on China Cat, I think he is basically doing a simplified version of that in the key of D during Bobby's "transition jam" basically toggling on the root>b7>root>b7>etc.
