Superb photos- thank you!

I'm sorry, but if I were Irsay I'd have to turn my desk around..... :-) I have the Guitar World Tiger poster on the wall in front of my desk and it lowers my productivity by about 30%

Productivity is less crucial when your whole job is owning the Colts and you don't have a boss. :lol:

Thanks for the report, Greg, and letting us live vicariously through you a little. I can only imagine how nervous I'd be in your shoes! Sorry you've gotten some negative responses from jealous people. And welcome to RUkind!

I'm writing up a detailed account of the whole thing that I'll post here if anyone is interested, and I have a lot more photos.

Hey that is very cool, Greg.
'Just funnin' on the F-chord thing. No one said you were playing it "wrong", just, not like Jerry typically plays that chord form. The only place I've really seen him do a full 6-string index-finger barre chord is on Alabama Getaway. fwiw, My lil' sausage fingers aren't long enough to play thumb/finger chords very fluently either.
Looking forward to the pics.

:cool:

I'm putting a few video clips up, too. My buddy filmed them on his iPhone in portrait mode which KILLS me, but it's better than nothing.

I blow a few licks, but in my defense my fingers were shakin' a little.

Caveat: For you purists, I probably combine some Jerry and Bobby rhythm parts. It's been over 10 years since I played these songs live in a band and I mostly play them solo acoustic now in my own style.

Here are some Eyes of the World licks through various pickups:
