Winwood wouldn't play it the same as The Dead, because he plays it in the key of A and the Dead play it in the key of G.

The original riff in the key of A would be:
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-------------0-2-0----------------------------
--------0h3-----------------------------------
--0h3-----------------------------------------

Fantasy lick

I play it close to xstonr, but with a one-note variation and no hammer-ons, just heavy bends:

-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
----------------------A CHORD-----------------
--------0-3----0-3------------------------------
--0-3-----------------------------------------

I've also seen it (and vary it) as:

-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
----------------------A CHORD-----------------
--------0-3-----0-3------------------------------
--0-2-----------------------------------------

My daughter and I were playing along with a Traffic version we downloaded from iTunes last night. It is right on the C major pentatonic so "Guests" assertion here is at least not always true.

I just wanted to straighten that out 6 years later. :shock:
