Video: The Grateful Dead performs “Row Jimmy” at Levi’s Stadium

I don’t know about you but Bob Weir is one HELL of a singer and guitar player. Oh wow. Even though Jerry Garcia originally sung the lead vocals on this song, Bob still did really well. I love Bob’s guitar playing style. If you watch Bob play rhythm guitar and watch what he’s doing… he does more than just playing open chords. His fretting hand is always up and down the neck. I’m pretty sure Bob is playing a lot of chord inversions. He knows the map of the fretboard. Once you’ve mastered the map of the fretboard, you’ll be able to play chords everywhere. Really, watch the way Bob plays, he moves his fretting hand all over the place. I would like to learn how to play rhythm guitar like that.
