Like Lazarus arising from the dead... I'm not here to sell Kitchen Cabinets.


@1:53:00 Clear shot of the Black Strat, right before the Close Encounters Tease... This is the MIDI Strat's LAST SHOW


@42:00... quick glimpse of the GK-2 mounted on Wolf. Wolf is used until the Middle of Dear Mr Fantasy. Switch to Tiger @54:45


Wolf is clearly visible throughout Space and into the Other One, switch to Tiger takes place @9:35

I saw Wolf at the Warlocks shows in Hampton in '89 - I love that guitar, it's the one I think I will forever associate with Garcia even though Tiger was what he played at almost all of the shows I saw. After my first shows in '82 I went to see the Grateful Dead Movie at the midnight movies in a local shopping mall and that was the first up-close look I got of Garcia playing guitar and Wolf was the coolest guitar my 16 year-old me had ever seen.

Barlow on Jerry MIDI.... from Rolling Stone...

"And he wasn't really able to appreciate himself, which was a pity because, believe me, Jerry was the fattest trip of all. About the most he would say for himself was that he was a competent musician. But he would say that. I remember one time he started experimenting with MIDI; he was using all these MIDI-sampled trumpet sounds. And he started playing that on his guitar, and he sounded like Miles Davis, only better. I went up to him the first time I ever heard him do it, and I said, "You could have been a great fucking trumpet player.' And he looked at me and said, 'I am a great fucking trumpet player.' So, he knew."[/i][/
