This songs sick to jam on. I like throwin in some minor pentatonic/blues scales w/maj 3rds and 6ths, it sounds good over the B-->E progression. You can play around with a lot of different scales. Jer-bear uses mainly B maj in my fav version 2/26/77 w/lots of tremelo picking. Love this jam!

I've been trying to fiqure out some of the target notes that Jerry seems to use in his leads here( old '77 versions). he seems to target 3 or 4 note repetetions and works them like a new years eve hooker. I can see that the song is certainly in B mixo, and i am guessing that the E mixo mode can be used for those E chord intervals. do any of you Jedi's have any good pointers i could use to put this together alittle better? Is it the the D# , E and F# for the B?. . anyway, any ideas would be appreciated as always.
