Billbbill, I broke out my CD of Bear's Choice last night. What a terrible version, what was Owsley thinking? But anyway, we used to do this song with great success.
I always thought, and still think, the chords during the verses are, like, B B7 E D B, and repeating. Then there is that other chord, don't have my guitar here to think it through, and then finally a B and STOP. Then the threes: A E B
In the jam from the Phil zone it goes finally to, I think i have it right, B A D [?], don't know the braketed chord without my guitar in hand.
But, anyway, I found a few sweet things on Jer's riffing that I had never found before on Bear's choice.
The cool thing about learning guitar is that when you eventually cycle back to something you learned a long time before, it is much clearer when you get to it anew. Your increased understanding over time allows you to make further progress on stuff that was so mysterious once before.
