“A Merry Jerry Holiday” . . . . . . . . : 25 Days Of Jerry

Happy Holidays everyone, we made it through a year in hell.

Weeping Willow Guitar Lessons is an excellent YouTube channel for Deadhead/ABB fan guitarists (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSqUU4fjNPVq6NvKtNIWKOQ). He’s been putting out some serious high quality content: solo transcriptions, breakdown of guitar parts and backing tracks. This year he did something really cool. Everyday for 25 days, he put out a video with a short Jerry Garcia solo transcribed in both music notation and guitar tablature. The transcription scrolls along the bottom of the screen while the solo is played so you can follow along. For the harder solos, he’ll repeat it at a slower tempo. Going through the solos can be a little work. A separate hard copy of the transcriptions would be handy as a reference but the process can provide a guitarist with a wealth of Jerry guitar vocabulary to study and absorb into your own playing.
