Ive really only found one other person I am able to play this song with well.
Ive tried it in various band situations, but have found it a very elusive song to nail down. For the most part, people seem to get hung up on the solo parts, everyone seems to have their own interpretation of how the solos go.
Pay close attention to the rythym at the end of measure six going into measures seven and eight. This is where people seem to get hung up with the counting, don't rush it...let the "two time roll".

But - also listening to the 80's versions I hear the Dead struggle with this part too - it seems that everyone misses it a lot when Jerry solos - but when Brent solos and Jerry carries the rhythm then they get it.
If I get a chance later I'll post an example of it.

Bm A G D D D D A - then back to the top A of the solo (or back to singing the verse). Makes it flow much easier.
