I had a request to break down this song, so....

Here it is.  I'm not near as good at this as LB, but I hope you like it.

Good one Dave. I like that 2 string A hammer on. Its going to take some practice to get it I think.

Yeah, that hammer part was what I knew would take bunches of time for me, too.  I can't even successfully hammer one string at the same time that I pluck a bass string.  Timing...and my bass pluck always drowns out my treble hammer.  But I did enjoy that tutorial.

Hi ryler and Randy,  thanks for the posts.

Hey, if you want some great instructional stuff for all levels and all styles, check out Homespun Tapes and Records:

They'll help you get past that hammer-on pull-off hurdle in no time!

If you have any questions on what materials to get, give them a call. They are VERY helpful.

Take care!

Cool Dave. Beauty of a guitar! I've played this for a long time, as well. I've always known it as Know You Rider as in (I) know you rider. I do it in drop D. More Grateful Dead than Jorma Kaukonen. Great jam tune.

Hey, Duck, how the heck are ya?  I've seen the title both ways. I'd love to hear your drop-D GD version!  Can you record it?

I'm middlin' Dave. Hand and car problems. How about you? The Dead and Jorma's are pretty much the only versions I've ever heard. I can record it easily enough but we'll have to wait until my hand gets better. Miracle drugs are working but it may be at least a couple of weeks (or sooner, I hope please please please). I have no idea how to post it on a forum though. My technical skills pretty much end at plugging things in.

Thanks Dave, some good tips there!
I strum the Dead version and am looking to spruce it up a bit, this should help.
