View Full Version : 76th Season of the Ukulele - Happy Birthday Jerry!

Aloha everyone,
I just realized that my being in Hawaii must be driving the East Coasters, and even more so the Europeans, absolutely crazy!!!
I just finished breakfast.

This Thursday, August 1st, will be the late Jerry Garcia's 71st birthday.

This season will be all about songs performed by Jerry Garcia and/or the Grateful Dead. This is a very vast repertoire, ranging from Rock & Roll to folk to bluegrass.

If you need confirmation or suggestions for a song, check http://www.rukind.com and click on Grateful Dead tabs. They have a comprehensive list (and many tabs/lyrics) of pretty much every song they ever performed.

There were not many rules at Grateful Dead concerts, so please feel free to make your videos however you want, multitracking, etc.
All I ask is that the ukulele be the main instrument used to perform the song, and I would like to see you perform the song.
Bonus Entries? I cannot really think about how something would be a bonus, as there is so much material available that fits in with the Season.

My wife and I will select the winners - they will just be our favorites.

I am really looking forward to seeing what you folks come up with!

Prizes - I have 90 tracks of unreleased Grateful Dead songs from live concerts. Winners will receive "bootleg" discs of live music. I am thinking it will probably be top three but we will just have to wait and see.

Please do not post any videos in THIS season until Season 75 is over. Love the Imaginary Season by the way so perhaps that can be the Bonus track location for this season.

Deadline for entries is 11:59:59 PM on Sunday, August 4, 2013.

Pueo. There's supposed to be a one-day overlap between one season finishing and the next season beginning. And it's not the Europeans, but the Australians who will be suffering. Their Sunday is already over.

Mahalo nui loa, Pueo!

Looks like a great season for sure. Now...the Jerry connection can be songs he performed with the Dead, or songs that he wrote in some way? The one I'm thinking of was one he wrote music to...Robert Hunter wrote the lyric.

Excellent question! I would say any Garcia/Hunter tune would certainly be allowed. I was trying to focus on songs Jerry specifically performed, whether on any of his solo projects or with the Dead, but as long as there is a connection go for it!

Host sets the rules but yes, by convention the new season starts on Sunday morning at some flavour of continental US time so there is an overlap. No one is actually disadvantaged, though as the season ends at whatever local time corresponds to midnight Sunday, Hawaii time. (11am Monday for us in the UK - until the clocks go back, that is.)

This is not necessarily about original Grateful Dead songs, but Jerry and the Dead covered many, many songs, including country, folk, bluegrass...
Also many Dylan songs and many 60's Rock standards. I promise, there is A LOT to choose from.

Thanks for posting this. I would like to add that this list is not at all a COMPLETE list of their covers. Just off the top of my head I see that "I Used to Love Her" by Bobby Womack is not listed, and I was at a show where they played that - it is a song that The Rolling Stones covered also.

My entry for this week, I tried to do a TCK kind of intro, but failed miserably ;). This is a song the Grateful Dead covered, it was also done by U2/Bono which is where I've heard it before. This is probably more of a Bob Dylan kind of version, as that is what I listened to just before recording.

I was playing something totally different and this came up. Seems she wanted to spend a little time by the riverside, so grab your Ukulele and meet me there- we've got some things to talk about.

Here's my entry.

When I saw they had covered some Chuck Berry, I thought that just had to be it so out came the Risa stick and the Vox Stombox effects unit and away!

I've already done Johnny B Goode in a recent season, so it had to be Around and Around. The Dead took it quite a bit slower than Chuck Berry (or the Stones) and I had intended to do it at the slower pace but somehow the original Chuck Berry tempo asserted itself. You just have to rock this one!!! :nana:

I may not get to do another entry this week unfortunately, as I saw quite a few folk possibilities in the list. My elder daughter is arriving tomorrow with my granddaughter so I will be busy for the rest of the week.

Very nice Dave! Your vocals and playing are top shelf. It is very poignant that you chose this song. I first heard Jerry perform this song on August 1, 1992, at Irvine Meadows amphitheater in California. It was my first Jerry Garcia Band concert and it was on Jerry's 50th birthday! I recall Jerry's vocals being so full of pain - unknown to me at the time the pressures of the 1992 tour had caused him to use again, he was just exhausted. I am sure he felt as though he literally was knocking on Heaven's door at the time, and shortly after this show the boys in the band tried to get him to go back to rehab but he refused. He did get some at-home holistic and medical treatment but he did not go get "real" help for another year or so.

Thanks for taking me back to my first Jerry show, and on his birthday no less!

That is a BIG song, nice job with the lyrics. I know even Jerry had a hard time remembering all the lyrics to the longer Dylan tunes. You rocked it!
This is one of my favorite Jerry Garcia Dylan covers, in fact I prefer Jerry's version over Bob's (OK, I know, I'm biased but judge for yourself! (http://youtu.be/tv7DY27aPyk)).

Really great job man! That ukulele sounds sublime, and I am a big fan of your singing and playing.

Incidentally, someone recently asked me how and why I got into the Dead in the first place. I basically got taken to a show by a friend, I had no idea what they sounded like or what they were about, and I was partying pretty hard at the show, and all of a sudden I was overwhelmed and trying to come to grips with what was going on. I decided I would try to LISTEN to the music. Right at that moment, the band sang "Whoa-ho what I want to know-oh - How does this song go?" and that was EXACTLY what I was thinking at the time. The cosmic connection had been made, and I became a Deadhead right then and there. Thanks for taking me back to Irvine Meadows on April 28, 1989!

I love it like no other, but I am a slave to it's whimsy- like I said, I play what it wants to play.
Glad you liked the video- as for playing your requests, well, "I've got me an ukulele and I beg you to call a tune". Not sure "talent" is the right word, but if I made you smile and remember a good time, I did what I set out to do. Thanks for hosting this week- lots of fun so far!

Thanks Pueo for an awesome theme this week. Had a crack at this song yesterday but wasn't happy with it at all so I practiced it a bit more and took another shot this morning. "Minglewood Blues", which Noah Lewis first wrote and recorded back in 1928, and which the Dead recorded in variant versions across several records. Actually I only really know about Jerry Garcia because of jug band music. As it happens, his first band was a jug band, Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, which morphed first into a rock n' roll band and then into the Grateful Dead. The first person I ever heard sing this song was Geoff Muldaur who I reckon is the best blue eyed blues singer there's ever been.

Thanks for your entry and I enjoyed your vocals, I could feel your longing for the green green grass of home!

Haha- that is a pretty slow version right there...wonder which cultivar the green green grass is?
This week sure is shaping up. Great entertainment here for sure, perfect with Coffee in the AM.

My entry for Season 74.

Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead certainly performed a heap of good songs. I rather liked this one, "Dark Hollow". They changed the lyrics around sometimes over the years.

SO STOKED on the Bloke's rendition of this- had no idea the Dead did it. He nailed it, but I figured the original might be enjoyable for some...now stuck in my head all day I am certain

Duuuuuuuuuude! Shakedown! NO WAY! Awesome!

The first time I heard Shakedown Street live was at the Grateful Dead show on June 1, 1991 at the Los Angeles Coliseum. It opened the show. The fans went NUTS and everyone in the seats (except us apparently) made a mad dash for the floor, which was surrounded by a temporary chain-link fence. The mass of the crowd overwhelmed the cops and the StaffPRO folks, and it got pretty ugly. That was the only sign of unruly people I ever saw at a Dead show. I heard that the LAPD almost had them stop playing, but instead just had them not start to play the next song until the crowd had calmed down and they swept the people back into the seats.

Nobody's Fault but Mine
First rough take - but it features young Jaxson's first vocal performance.
Also check out the look Curt gives me when I spring a percussion break he wasn't ready for.
He said he was expecting it to be a banjo uke break and he was playing soft.
The banjo uke is way too loud (and not played too well) but the whole thing was done on his iPhone.
Just a bit of first take folly.

Curt has just returned from a trip to the US. He went to LA then drove to Los Vegas. Also hired some Harleys and rode to Hoover Dam. He was with two mates celebrating his 30th birthday.
I was worried about him the whole time and am sure glad he is back safe.

This song has many lyrics - I stuck to the ones listed in the Grateful Dead song list.

Like many others this week, I initially thought I wouldn't have anything to contribute to a Grateful Dead week, but Pueo's helpful link led me to a key song for me and my relationship with the ukulele.

I fell for my first real uke a few years ago, but things really took off when I was playing around and this arrangement for this song fell out. It made me realize the unlimited potential of the instrument and the long path I would embark on - still happily following today.

So thanks for the opportunity to do this one. It also gave me an opportunity to try out my new solid body electric uke.

The video seems a tad out of sync, which is, I am sure, a result of exporting the audio and cleaning it up a bit, but it kind of adds to the general hoodoo of the whole thing. Hope you enjoy it.

I'm really digging the covers of songs the Dead covered.

Ron McKernan, who died in 1973, was a founder of the band.
He was the guy who brought King Bee, Midnight Hour and all the blues and soul music to the group.
They were never the same after we lost him.

This one was on the American Beauty album from 1970.

A song they covered: "Bad Moon Rising." I must admit, though, that this is really a cover of Sixteen Horsepower's cover. Ever since I heard their version—which features a slide guitar and a toy piano, and sounds like you’re alone at midnight in a swamp and the devil is on your trail—any version of this song that isn't in minor tonality just sounds poppy and saccharine and wrong and makes my teeth hurt. I think their way is the right treatment to give these lyrics, and this is a version of that.

The chords I'm using are dead simple: Am - Dm - F for the verses and then F - Am - Dm - F - Am for the chorus. Except that this ukulele is tuned in Eb linear, so it’s actually Cm - Fm - Ab / Ab - Cm - Fm - Ab - Cm.

A confession. I know I've never let a GD/JG record darken my turntable; and I don't think I've ever knowingly listened to any piece of music by GD/JG. I knew about them of course. I just never got them. Same thing with Jefferson Airplane. I'd see the cool kids in my high school of course wandering round with GD/JA albums tucked under their arms; but for me, the thought of actually sitting down and listening to a 13 minute jam just curdled my blood. Sorry, just not my cup of tea.

No, I was always more of a soul boy, much to my peers' consternation. I remember very clearly, my first year at college, a visitor to my dorm asking "what's that caterwauling?" - That 'caterwauling', my friend, is "Cigarettes and Coffee" by Otis Redding.

With that backstory, this one was an obvious choice - I only wish I had a smidgeon of Freddie Scott's soul (...voice, obvs. I haven't made a pact at the crossroads on Highway 61 ;) ).

I am so with you on this, my brother. I actually saw the Dead twice - once in 1971 (fairly boring) and again in the late 90s, only because a well respected friend was a big fan and we were both in the same town where there was a double bill with Dylan. (And I went to sleep for the second Dead set.)

And Cigarettes and Coffee may just be my favorite Otis song, although I love almost all of his stuff.

But I found a Creedence number to do this week.

So Ukuleledaddy did "Sitting In Limbo" yesterday, off the soundtrack for "The Harder They Come". I told him we ought to cover the whole damn record because it is a great one, and he told me the Dead did the title track. Did one from it last week too (Pressure Drop), so I figured I would do another.
Turns out that on August 26th, 1989, Jerry did the song with Jimmy Cliff at one of the last performances the dead did at the Greek.
Seems after that, they moved it all to Shoreline. That is the Dead I recall...whole dang town full of deadheads for a week every year. Sure made the people watching better for a bit.
In any event- the song.

So- this is one of those videos that could use a few more days...but Melissa's dad had surgery out of the blue today, and she is off to see him tomorrow. That means it is GO TIME...and that is all right with us. Were more about making music than we are about making perfect music. When we knew it was not going to be perfect, we decided we might as well play it for the neighbors. Keep 'em guessing right?
We will survive...

Love this- little sing-a-long. You know, the thing that is great about the Seasons is also the thing that sucks the most. It takes a continent (shoot- a globe) and makes it really tiny. Be nice if that all went down right in the living room. As it stands, this is definitely the best way I have ever greeted the day. Thanks for that my friend.

I don't know much about many things. But I know a little bit about the Grateful Dead.


Dead bashing has gone on as long as the boys have been around. Journalists and "critics who prophesy with their pens" have made it a sport. Who can wield the sharpest sword? and...it was easy. They didn't fight back. They didn't care. They were doing what they wanted to do for people who wanted them to do it. Phil Lesh even used to tell the old joke about the deadhead who's drugs wore of and who said, "God this music SUCKS!" (There is a large sober community of Deadheads, by the way, called Wharfrats. They have meetings at setbreaks at shows for lots of bands these days.)


I'm one of many people who started playing music because of the Beatles and have continued playing ever since because of the Dead. You wouldn't know my name and would never have heard me sing or play if it wasn't for them. (Maybe that would be a good thing?)


The Beatles introduced me to Ravi Shankar.


The Dead introduced me to, Bruce Hornsby, Ornette Coleman, Branford Marsalis, Jesse Fuller, Reverend Gary Davis, Merle Haggard, Jimmy Reed, NRPS, Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, Bluegrass music in general, Hamza el Din, percussion instruments as music, non-standard time signatures... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgvSP1wr6Wc)and Hundreds of great musicians. They caused me to open my ears and find many, many more musicians on my own. I learned that the fact that I liked them didn't keep me from liking other music. That was a gift.


I only mention this because there is a lot more to them than most people know. They might or might not be worth your time. But, they were the most successful touring band in history for a reason.


I am still a deadhead.


Love,
Alan

I HOPE THIS IS NOT TOO LATE!!!

I have desperately wanted to be active again on this forum but when I saw this week's theme, I my heart sank and I thought "Oh no! I know nothing about Jerry Garcia or the Grateful Dead!" Then I discovered this song and tried to learn and memorise it all week long - humming during work, singing in the car/shower/while preparing meals/in my sleep!!! Much to my husband's annoyance! :D Here is the result :)

Hope it is acceptable and hope I have not missed the deadline...

Love,

I've just been reading this review (http://www.theguardian.com/music/2012/mar/13/grateful-dead-classic-feature) of the Dead's first London dates, April 1972 (they'd played England only once before, at a festival outside the small town of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffs). In it, the author expresses this one regret

The sadness of seeing the Dead for the first time is that the logistics of bringing them to England prevented the Wembley audience from sharing totally the seven-year evolution that produced the music they were hearing, as the band grinned happily as a pocket of freaks lit sparklers, or, between songs, asked anyone who couldn't hear well to shout "NO". The charisma is still there, so evident in the gang of freeloaders trying to get a piece of Grateful Dead energy at the after-show reception.

It would have been nice to have grown up with the acid-test band, particularly as there is the sneaking suspicion that if the first London acid had been dropped watching them rather than cerebrally isolating the Pink Floyd, we might be a stronger community.

I think that's the difference between Alan & myself. He grew up with the Dead. On this side of the pond, we didn't.

Furthermore by the time the Dead did make their London debut, the musical tides in England were no longer flowing in their direction. The night after the Dead's 2nd date, Ziggy Stardust made his first appearance on the very same stage. I was following the Faces all round the country.Later that year, I saw the New York Dolls supporting the Faces at Wembley Pool. Had the Dead's 1968 European tour not been cancelled, it might have been a different story.

I did introduce my post as a confession, not as a piece of Dead-bashing. It's not that I actively dislike the Dead, in the way in which I dislike for example Loudon Wainwright. The point is they just never impacted on my life, still less my musical education.

I don't think their lack of impact on me or my lack of exposure to them was untypical for a Brit of my generation, either. I'm in no doubt that they were the most successful touring band in history, but they only toured Europe 4 times. The 72 tour was well received (as the review shows). The 74 tour was by all accounts a disaster. The 81 & 90 shows were also well reviewed. But if you add all the shows from all the tours the Dead played in my hometown (or even England), it adds up to just 7 shows in 21 years - and, it's worth noting, Wembley Arena (the former Empire Pool) was the largest venue they ever played in the UK.

I think the best point of comparison would be if we had a Season dedicated to Chas'n'Dave. Every British seasonista could probably give you half-a-dozen Chas'n'Dave numbers at the the drop of a hat. I suspect however that mention of Chas'n'Dave will have a quite a few Seasonistas heading over to Google, (they opened for Led Zeppelin at Knebworth in 1979, btw).

But that's the beauty of the Seasons, isn't it? If you take on the challenge, you inevitably end up widening your musical horizons. I've enjoyed researching the chords for my own entries (thank you Chordify). I've listened to every single entry and bonus for this week, and enjoyed every one.

Thank you Pueo for setting the challenge, and thank you all for my continuing education.

I came across this one this morning and thought I would do one more for Season 76.

08-03-2013, 12:20 PM
I would echo much of what RedPaul said but I think that I would go for Madness or Lindisfarne as 'local' equivalent. To me Chas and Dave was music hall brought up to date.

I had definitely heard of the Grateful Dead and of Jerry Garcia and I know a lot of musicians had a great deal of respect for him but they were definitely not as well known this side of the pond. This week has been interesting though I have not been able to participate as much as I would have liked as my daughter has been visiting and we've been going out a lot but I have listened to a selection of the entries and they have been excellent.

Anyway, browsing a list of Grateful Dead songs I found this one. It seems to have been in their repertoire more or less from the time Marty Robbins wrote and recorded it up to end and I listened to a few You Tube clips of their singing it and enjoyed all of them.

This is a superb song that has the qualities of the great traditional ballads and tells a tragic story of love and jealousy and its consequences.

If Jerry did it 300 times live, I can do it two weeks in a row (I at least have a new video here)
They even did it at Woodstock. Who knew Merle Haggard had so much hippie street-cred?
Even if I cannot, I am not likely concerned.

Last week my wife, Jessica, and I sang a Sonic Youth song. SY guitarist Lee Ranaldo is a big Deadhead. Jessica's mom, Dorothy, saw a lot of Dead shows back in the 70s. Dorothy made the skirt (hanging on the door behind me in the vid) out of neck ties after seeing the Dead's Donna Jean Godchaux wear a neck tie skirt, and Dorothy and two of her pals each gave their daughters the middle name Rose (in honor of the Dead's classic, rose-covered album American Beauty). Now Jessica Rose and I live in the city of roses, and the Portland State math dept. uses a rose in a Klein bottle for its logo (probably too small to see in the video).

This is the first Dead song that spoke to me. My teen years were marked by both big and small family tragedies---"I will get by" was exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks to the Cloverdale couple and for their beautiful version! I had a devil of a time recording this---here's the best I could do.

Some GREAT entries this week, and I am really touched at the effort the non-Deadheads made to participate.
I was hoping to make some entries myself, but I was going to wait to see what everyone else did first. So far, two of my favorite songs to play on ukulele have not shown up, so tomorrow I am taking my ukulele to the beach and hope to lay down a track or two.

Thanks Brother,
It's been a real good time and there's a little time left believe it or not!
I'm right there with you on the new folks.
There was only one season where I really couldn't get inspired at all and that was one for a particular band that I just couldn't care about so I'm really sympathetic.
If anyone ever want's to keep me out of the running again they could do so by starting a season on a band I refer to as the Muddy Blahs...shiver. But mostly, I learn new stuff every week and love all the Seasonistas for hanging in and playing nicely.

Inclusion is better than exclusion any time, right?

Can't wait for your report from the beach!
There are lots I still haven't seen here that I'd love to hear.

My sympathies. It usually takes me between 90 & 120 minutes to upload a video. But the good news is you've got another 7 hours or so before entries close!

Got it!

This is the result of a LOT of takes. It was the best I could do, but it was a season of firsts for me: first time recording with the looper, first time trying a solo in this style, and the first time working on a Dead song. I had an absolute blast this season, though, so thanks, Pueo, for hosting the season that pushed me to try all these things! And a big thanks to mike who gave encouragement all along the way in my looper journey. This is a single take using live vocal processing and looping via a single pedal. No overdubs.

Anyhow, I was introduced to this song by The Decemberists, who covered it on their Long Live The King EP. I had never listened to the Dead, and would only have been able to pick out a song or two as theirs by listening to it. But it was a great season for pushing the boundaries, so here we are...


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNYfpol5S8w

I'm using the TC Helicon VoicePlay Live GTX for effects; it does vocal processing, harmonies, guitar amp modeling, and looping. This was the first time I really put it to the test with effects, harmonies, and looping. Basically I created two presets for this tune: one for the main body of the song, and one that crunched up the flanger for the solo. Then I kick in harmonies and the loop when needed. The whole thing runs directly into GarageBand via a USB cable. Then I edited it with imovie.

And of course, that's the Talsma Hollywood custom.

POI - AFAIK "Old & In The Way" didn't cover this song. You're thinking of "Old & In The Gray", the 2002 re-union of the surviving members of "Old & In The Way" (more about them here (http://www.ink19.com/issues/october2002/musicReviews/musicO/oldInGray.html)).

Thanks TCK. It was fun playing with you! What a great Season it would be to have people play together. Go for it. I have yet to host but intend to someday (:

HAHA! Yes!!! Vast and dramatic improvement right there bonesigh. What fun that is...I may have an idea for my next hosting opportunity. You and Alan have inspired me :)

Glad you have things back under control. Can you make sure to update the playlist? It looks like Sundays entries haven't been thrown in yet.


Aloha Folks!
I finally got the server situation under control and even salvaged a bit of my weekend back. Alas, the beach was a bust as a video location yesterday as it was super windy. I also got a touch more sun than I was expecting, but that is pretty easy to do around here.
My wife and I got through more than half of the videos last night, and we are going to give the rest a go tonight.
We are really impressed with many of you, and my wife has three clear favorites so far. I will have results this week - but I have to make my Seasonista video first, I promised Ginny :)

Yes, working on it - I did have some meetings this morning to attend.

Oh my god. I can't believe that while I was away camping at a folk festival for 10 days, I missed a JERRY GARCIA theme! Not fair!!!

Still Judging! You folks made this HARD! I want to just give everyone stuff!
We do have a few favorites though. We are just astonished at all the pure talent out there.
No one did "Deal" though, so while I compile the results, here is one of MY favorite Jerry songs to play on Ukulele.

It was 18 years ago today that we lost Jerry. Let's all listen to a little something today from him, whatever floats your boat. Me personally, I'm gonna listen to Grateful Dead - New Years Eve 1976 @ the Cow Palace. Miss ya Jerry.

I have been listening to the JGB Live Double CD from the Warfield in 1990. Thanks for posting that photo! Jerry is leaving the same harbor that I was sitting next to when I made the Deal video. How cool!

Digging the dive photo man, thanks.
The only time I got to chat with him was during the 94 tour and he looked really beat with all the requests from folks so I started asking him about diving and we had a nice chat about HI and Bonaire. As I left he said, "Hey, maybe we can go diving together sometime, man."

Whoa...you got to talk to the man, Alan? That is awesome! Shame he was so tired, but still pretty cool.

Yeah, I was happy to get to meet him. It was an event about his art stuff. Here's "Here Comes Sunshine" that night:

Casey, this is part of a brochure for Jerry's art work. I asked him to sign the cherry blossoms this way.

Sooooooooooo Sorry Gang!
I have been buried under a mountain of work - including evenings and weekends - and now we have visitors from the mainland - but I will get it done soon! :) The massive project has wound down and I will get some time to finish it up. I do know who my favorites are, but you are ALL winners in my book!

I was just thinkin' about how much I loved this season. Here's one of the first Ukulele videos I ever made with a uke I don't even own anymore. I was just learning but I loved and still do love this Dead tune:

Just checking in on this season… is everything ok, Pueo? Or should we add this to the list of lost seasons, like Tootler's Christmas Season, and Elvis' Elvis season?

No pressure, just wondering...

I don't think we can count Tootler's season as a lost one - I believe he said it would not have the usual winners thing - but that's just from memory.
Some would have us believe we don't think about seasons gone but I think we do.
