Dark Star: City Samanas, 7.23.12. Something to play & listen to.
Mostly A7 and G. The second half of the melody or verse has these chords: A7 G D Em and repeat to end of the verse.
Dark Star: Grateful Dead, 8.27.72. Gives you a sense of the jazzy improv sound that I like for Dark Star.
Birdsong: City Samanas 10.17.12 Here is an old version that can give you something to listen & perhaps play to.
We play E7 and D through the first part of the verse. Then C G /G D / D A / E. The chorus goes B C C# walk up to C#m/B/A E B/A E B/ A/E.
Birdsong: From the Dead at Radio City in 1980. Gives you a good idea for how they play it & you can see how I we are covering the vocal line and the guitar fills in our version. I can show you those and we can double them or even play harmonies or octaves.
Eyes of the World: City Samanas. 9.27.11 Something to play & listen to.
Starts out Emaj7 (you'll hear a fill not just Emaj7)
Verses go Emaj7/A/Emaj7/Bm A repeat
then A/C#m/B/A/C#m/B/D/A/E/A/E then A C
then Bm A
into the jam
Emaj7 & Bm
we can work on the parts at the end later if needed. but that should get you through a bunch of it.
Eyes of the World: Grateful Dead when they played Jersey City in 1974. Starts at 28:50. This is the version I have used as a template for what we do. Gives you a good idea for how we are covering the vocal line and the guitar fills in our version. I can show you those and again we can double them or even play harmonies or octaves.
