Hey kenny I was wondering If you could explain basic country rhythm and the whole rhythm for friend of the devil in full explanation it would be much appreciated. My father died about a year ago and was a great musician and the first song he ever learned was FOTD and i've been a musician for years on and off and i never learned a whole set song so if i could learn this song in full just like he did(he learned by watching jerry garcia play right like 5 feet away for him, he did security for the dead awhile ago in like 78)it would mean so much to me and i would be on my way to learning other songs... and grasping just a little piece of the dead's metaphysical inspiration.
