I'm playing it in G

So for the intro:
G F C D (x2) then to the G for the verse

Chorus D C G

Question, what is the intro riff? I don't have a recording.

I hear it like (full chords on top)
Code: Select all
              G  F               C D
g ----7-9-7---------12--10----- 
d -10----------------------12-- 
Thoughts, help?[/code]

strummin,
the original has a grungy sounding effect on it, a little distortion maybe.

Here's the way I hear it:

E|--3----------1----0----------2--
B|--0----------1----1----------3--
G|--0-------0--2----0-------0--2--
D|--0--0h2-----3----2--0h2-----4--
A|--2----------3----3----------5--
E|--3----------1------------------

btw the version i gave is the stones version, not the dead version. I've only heard the dead play this on DP vol 18 (78-02-03). The intro on that is all in G like the verse to the song. I hear it like this:

Bobby plays:
G G G6 G6 G7 G7 G-G6 G7-G6, like this:

E|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3---3---
B|--3--3--5--5--6--6--3h5-6/5-
G|--4--4--4--4--4--4--4---4---
D|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5---5---
A|----------------------------
E|----------------------------


Jerry plays:
E|--3-----3-------3--
B|--3--5--3--3h5--3--
G|-------------------
D|-------------------
A|-------------------
E|-------------------

repeat with some Jerry fun, like:
E|--7--6--5----3-------3--
B|----------------3h5--3--
G|--7--6--5----4----------
D|------------------------
A|------------------------
E|------------------------
