Just wondering if any of the cover bands out there play this part. I don't think I've ever heard a band do this particular part of the transition. At about the 8:09 mark into China, they go into this VERY nice jam I've only ever heard on some 73 and 74 shows (btw- the whole show is very nice)

Just wonderin'

We do. Its my favorite part. It basically switches From G major to D major. I love how it resolves on the big giant G.

+1 seems that folks have a hard time with the counting of it oddly enough.
Riff for 8, hold the D, riff for 8 hold the D, riff for 8 big G. Don't the confusion?!

Isn't it /D-A-Bm-A/ x 8 then 4 bars of G and repeat several times? On the last G passage resolve back to D for IKYR.

No, first few times around it goes back to the D and holds. last time around it goes to the G, G.

exactly..the double g is the part that seems to cause problems

That's the part I was getting wrong! Makes sense now. Glad to hear folks still play that little ditty- I just think really makes for a more colorful transition.
