Hello all, Matt here. I've been a member for a month or two now, really only browsing the forums until now. I've been a guitar player for about eight years, five of those years spent closely studying Jerry and Bob. I like to think all music has purpose, no matter what the genre. For me, The Dead and JGB serve to make me happy. Any time I have a bad day I throw on Dear Prudence form the Warfield (live album version) and it takes me away to happy land. It's the coolest feeling in the world to be part of a community that solely focuses on being happy, and being Kind. Anyway, thanks and I'll see you all in the tone threads!
