Do you have the maj 7 for the A in *()* so as to be optional? We just covered this for the first time last night and while I know the book has Amaj7 we discussed this in rehearsal while working this up for about 10 seconds before settling on the A instead of the maj7 shape. Haven't spent much time really checking it out so I could be off base with this.
So I had the ol 'ice 9 sheet music book out and was lookin at the A maj7 in truckin. I gave a whirl, then i was thinkin try some different positions. Thinkin of the studio version, Sounded best at the 4th position,
not bad Hmm. fingering something like this>
Then I thinks hey check out some vids of the live version.
And well everyone likes '72.
So here in April 17, 1972 at about just after 2 min at the WALSTIB (as i think of it) on the 'long'
part BobW goes back to rockin the A in the 5th posit. Maybe the maj 7 tonality is less implied in the live versions I am thinkin, i dunno?
Shoreline 89 looks like Jer is rockin the A as well at about 3 min into but he certainly could be flatin a note for the maj7 in passing or othervise hard to see.
Anywho I am just having some fun jamming along to GD videos today, I am on vacation this week
