started posting last week or so -- very cool friendly environment here (kind of like the shows...)

equip? 58 musicmaster, 78 musicmaster, 91 les paul studio light, 2001 american strat and a tiger, an excellent handmade copy of jerry's irwin:
click on "gallery", 2d inspiration from the right

amps: line 6 and a tweed covered peavy tube amp (late 70's).

saw jerry every year from 74 through 95 and I've been playing the dead a long time.

at this time, I'd like to give back to the community, so I'm posting "garcia-esq" vids on youtube, with scales, songs etc.

I haven't figured out how to link in or post them on rukind yet, but we'll get there.

God bless the young guys. it's REALLY hard to imagine so many people getting into the dead who never saw jerry live - - it was like spending a fun day with your favorite uncle. very personal at times.

hey, if anyone has any vid requests (tunes, scales, whatnot), let me know. I'm starting to break down some of the JGB riffs and scales and should be updating youtube every week.

thanks for having me,
