Check out the legendary licks Dead DVD. On that Shakedown Street is shown completely. This DVD is well worth the money. Not some of my favorite Dead songs, but still a very cool instructional video you may take a lot from. I have.
HOWEYMAN, I've heard of this, but can't seem to find it. Where do I get it?
I found mine brand new on ebay for about $15 including shipping. Total deal. I totally agree with Honeyman: Not the greatest songs, but so much to learn from it. My band now plays Casey Jones and it sounds much better thanks to the dvd!

I play "Bob" in Juba Juba! and usually just come up with my own voicings and licks. I've tried to watch Bob on Winterland and other DVDs, but the camera folks just don't stay on him long enough for me to pick up his specific stuff. Hopefully, this will show me his particulars; once I know those, I can probably apply them to other tunes.
sounds like a good thing to pick up...by the way, I thank everyone for their help in me putting my board pieces together in the right way.. i finally feel like i have "the sound" or as close to it as i can hear anyway, and am having a lot of fun hitting different effects at different places in songs.. thanks y'all
