I'm not sure what you mean by this part of the solo chords | Am | E | G | D |.
I usually just play the Am walkdown ala the intro, only I hang twice as long on each half-step for the solo section
If you use slash chords (inversions) for the E and D this sequence you get: | Am | E/G# | G | D/F# | (I probably should have been more specific), which does give you a walk-down similar to the intro & chorus. But I'm pretty sure that the intro/chorus are just a walk-down over an Am chord (in fact Phil even pedals an A throughout), and in the solo section, it really sounds to me like the band (Phil in particular) are following these chords (not even necessarily using the inversions). At least that's what it sounds like in the version I'm using as a reference (5/19/74 Portland, for what it's worth).
Definitely a Dm in there too, after the first F, in this version...though it's worth noting that when you're soloing, you can pretty much treat these as one and the same.
Funny, this was never really a favorite tune of mine until I actually started playing it (and singing it...LOVE the lyrics).
recently re-vamped and updated.
Ideal practice tools for improvisation...backing tracks, lessons on modes, CAGED, etc.
