F#m, A, D7, Ao7...
I know for a fact that you of all peeps love this stuff! I respect your ear...but give it a shot... Play that A7 with your fingers and let that open G snap on the way to D7.tcsned wrote: ↑Fri Apr 20, 2018 8:51 amI suppose you could be right, I probably learned to play this song in 1982-3 way before the intarwebs were around to help. The A7 just doesn't sound right to me. I just got out a guitar and ran through it but I'm at work so I couldn't really play loudly. It is entirely possible that I am holding onto a legacy of my youth When I get home I shall explore further
I've always played it like you do, as do all the Deadheads in my neck of the woods. Works for me.
I try not to look as much as I try to listen especially in this vid. The first time Jer does this it looks like an E but you can hear Jer’s open A string being hit. 2nd time through there is a lot more going on with Phil and Brent that it’s harder to tell. Either way, all good.

i mean since weight and stage volume loudness issues are eliminated and not a factor in the decision to play just like Jerry, shouldn't you just play what is comfortable to you? isn't it close enough that your average listener would compliment you with an "You sound just like Jerry!" when you play the E instead of the A7?
