I don't know if I can describe it...I love the stuff that Garcia does during....say...Let It Grow. It sounds like he's playing triads but bouncing around following a scale perhaps. I'm just thinking of the part..."follows the path to the river shore" that break before the next line, there is often a flurry of quick stacatto changes that he's playing there. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?...and if you do...could you tell me how to play that?!

personally I have yet to see a lesson of Help on the Way that is worth a damn.

other ones I like -
Althea - particularly how Jerry solos on this song.
Stella Blue - just a beautiful song with interesting chords and an interesting solo
