    Geeze, thanks for this. More so than that whole Day of the Dead debacle, as a Steal-Your-Face tattoo wearing fan, I'm more disappointed by the apparent lack of GD knowledge on display here.

    Yeah, I have a bootleg cassette of Jerry Garcia playing this back in the late 60s. I think Old and In the Way recorded it too.

    I'd love to learn to play it. Thanks!
