Psychedelic 60s - Thursday - Week 4
Psychedelic '60s - Miller/Jerry Garcia Jams|
Jerry Garcia and I use to jam for hours at sound check before our shows (Moby Grape/Grateful Dead) at the Fillmore (San Francisco, CA). Bill Graham and crew use to play basketball to the beat of our grooves while Jerry and I kept time to the echo of the hall.
Today's lick is based on a simple groove that Jerry and I used to play. The groove starts with the D7#9 chord (the same chord Jimi Hendrix used in Purple Haze), down to G#9 and ending with the G9. Notice how I mute a portion of each chord by slightly touching the string with my 1st finger. Try playing to the looping jam track while you visualize jammin' with Jerry Garcia and I onstage at the Fillmore.
