    Do you guys love when you’re out an outdoor festi or show and that guitar tone just pierces thru the night?
    There’s always that smokey fog that swirls around accented by the light show and the guitr shreds it like a knife.

    I really love that……It keeps me coming back.

  2. Selector J Says:

    No problem, Phoam. I love talking about Chs.

    Although, my jealousy just increased 10 fold after typing that one.

  3. Jtran Says:

    Thanks for the recs. Unfortunately I don’t like sushi and you can’t get Filipino food in VT 🙂

  4. Jtran Says:


    Listening to that So Many Roads as well. Soulful.

    “DF- any luck on the ticket front?”

    i have given up on AC and am now planning on spending all my money on the 5 new years shows. if i get shut out of those shows i will cry

  7. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Stella Blue or So Many Roads….pick one. discuss.

    Stella for me. One of the most beautiful songs written by any band/ person ever.

  8. Jtran Says:

    Cheers willowed. Always a good choice.

  9. guitarpicker420! Says:

    I’d take a solid Dew over either one of those Palmer. And a sneaky, awesome ballad is To Lay Me Down.

  10. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    “I just noticed his badass bass player while flipping through cable channels about a year ago and wondered who the hell the young lady shredding the bass was.”

    lol same

  11. Jtran Says:

    Hmm, hard choice Palmer. I don’t know enough to really choose, but I think I’d have to take Stella Blue.

  12. willowed Says:

    I have to say Warf Rat is my go to tune.

    Best song I’ve ever heard

  13. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Can’t go wrong with either one of those GP420, although Dew isn’t a GD original. One of my fondest show memories was having Jerry drop the Dew for me on my 21st birthday @ Nassau 3/27/94. He freaking nailed it too! It was my only request going into the show as well.

  14. Jtran Says:

    7/9/95 So Many Roads

    The note Jerry hits (vocally) at 8:30ish is great

  15. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    jerry could hit notes in ’95?

  16. willowed Says:

    Then again…I am not a dead aficionado. I just know I love that song with all my heart

    I know what I like and that just does it for me. One of the best lines i’ve ever listened to.

    I got no dime but I got some time to hear his story.

  17. guitarpicker420! Says:

    True about the Dew, but they made it their own for sure. When Garcia wails “I guess it doesn’t matter, anyway”, that always spoke to me on a primordial level. That and the song freaking jams when their on it. Listening to To Lay Me Down 12-29-88 right now. I saw the song once, Deer Creek ’92. Its a shame they didn’t play it more often.

  18. phoammhead Says:

    Here’s a 1994 with both So Many Roads and Stella Blue

    Gosh, I like both songs a helluva lot – hard to pick one over the other.

  19. Leo Weaver Says:

    Good recs @Selector…I’m pretty sure there’ll be a cooler full of “carolina clusters” at the house by around noon on Friday…gonna stop by Crosby’s on the way in. Used to go to Poe’s for burgers when we went to Sully’s…not too often considering I lived on Maybank Hwy and we usually went out to Folly’s. I dunno if that pub on Maybank was open back then…I didn’t know about it if it was. Shem Creek…the Wreck, what a great little joint! We’ll do it up right for you J!

    Killer video from Halloween 94′ check it

  21. guitarpicker420! Says:

    The Philly ’95 So Many Roads, I think its the show with the Unbroken Chain bustout is fantastic.

  22. willowed Says:

    I guess my top 2 dead songs would be:
    1) Warf Rat
    2) Weather Report Suite

    Again…It’s just the feelings I get when I listen.

  23. Leo Weaver Says:

    @aqua if you’re still around…yeah AutoCAD. The latest version is supposed to be very intuitive, powerful, and versatile…but it’s gonna be a bitch to learn. Old dogs, new tricks, all that stuff…
