New Minglewood Blues - Jerry Garcia Solo 5/21/77

Jerry Garcia's first chorus of his first solo from the Grateful Dead's May 21, 1977 found on Dick's Picks Vol. 29. Tons of great chromatic approach note lines mixed in with some straight ahead pentatonic phrases and a few pedal steel licks for good measure.

Transcription can be found at my Soundslice page. I demonstrate the solo twice. First run through is a slower tempo (84 BPM) while the second (102 BPM) is closer to the performance from 5/21/77.
