What is the form of the Solo?

How long do you wait on C before changing chords in this solo? It's not quite like the verses. The Dead never seemed to screw it up so there must be a set number of measures...

4 - during the verses it's 3
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us

According to: http://www.deadstein.com/music/Tennessee%20Jed.htm

I don't know if this will cut + paste well..

Tennessee Jed

Verse 1 || C / / / | % | % | G / C / |

| F / / / | G / C / | C / / / | G / C / |

| C / / / |Co7 / / / |Dm7 / / / | C7 / C / |

1)________ 2)__________

| F / / / | G / C / | C / / / | G / C / :|| Bb / F / | G / C / ||

Cold iron shackles, ball and chain, Listen to the whistle of the evenin' train.

You know you bound to wind up dead, If you don't head back to Tennessee Jed.



Verse 2 Rich man step on my poor head, When you get back you better butter my bread.

Well, do you know it's like I said, You better head back to Tennessee Jed.



Chorus | F / / / | % | C / / / | G / F / |

Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be,

|C / / / | G / | F / / / | % | C / G / | F / / / | G / C / |

Baby won't you carry me back to Tennessee.



Instrumental || C / / / | % | % | G / C / :|| C / / / | C / G / |



Verse 3 Drink all day and rock all night, the law come to get you if you don't walk right

Got a letter this morning, baby all it read, "you better head back to Tennessee Jed."



Verse 4 I dropped four flights and cracked my spine, Honey, come quick with the iodine,

Catch a few winks, baby, under the bed, then you head back to Tennessee Jed.

Chorus



Instrumental || C / / / | % | % | G / C / :|| C / / / | C / G / |



Verse 5 I run into Charlie Fog, blacked my eye and he kicked my dog.

My doggie turned to me and he said, "Let's head back to Tennessee Jed."



Verse 6 I woke up a feelin' mean, went down to play the slot machine,

The wheels turned around,the letters read,”You better head back to Tennessee Jed”

Chorus
4x 8x 8x

Lead || ||: C / / /| % | % | G / C / :|| : F / / / :|| : G / / / :|| : ||


Chorus
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...

That's wrong. Actually most of it is either the same here or more wrong.

The instrumental holds the C then to the F then to the G and some later versions have it walk up to the G.

Ok, now I get it. It's the "3 during the verses" part that's been confusing me.... I was considering the C CmM7 Dm7 [something]/G part to be a separate entity rather than the 3rd phrase of the verses, and each phrase to be 2 measures even though by my count the snare only hits on beat 3.

So you hang on C during the solos for either 4, 8, or 16 measures depending on how you want to count it. I can't really explain it very well but I think I've got it. Thanks!

The Intro, the short leads after the chorus and the lead at the end are all what you need to look at? All of them have a rhythmic bond, that you can count in two, it is in cut time; 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2, ect. ect. yes its is C16,X, F8,X, and G,8X, repeat. note the last two bars of G that transition in to the chorus are, Bb,F/G/C. well thats my take on it. he he
