Jam – 2011-01-17 – Carroll’s

Another Monday night jam for Deadstein meant no traffic in or out of the city, but it did mean a long week to endure after an exhausting night of Deadstein.  The night  was made even more difficult by the beautiful, large-flake snowfall on the drive home.  I beat any issues with the snow on the ground by about an hour and therefore the snow was a nice groovy experience to enjoy on the way home; thinking about what just happened at Deadstein.

Trister was in for the first half of the jam this week so we got a good set in with him before he left leaving the Grateful Dead duties to the five of us.  It was fun with Trister and it was fun without him.  The key to it all is it is fun.

I had been playing and practicing a bit with my iTunes at home, focusing on primarily 1977 music, but it also steered me into playing the Here Comes Sunshine openers as well as the Easy Wind.  I had the mojo of the Here Comes Sunshine in my bones, but the Easy Wind I couldn’t catch on to.  The Passenger, Looks Like Rain and Scarlet were all fresh in me an I finally learned the Jerry parts of the Scarlet and this version felt pretty good.

    Lots of great music and lots of fun. We should be proud of the great dynamics on “Death…” thanks also to our faithful followers Rob & Mirriam for groovimg, and a walk-on cameo by Scott B.
