Greetings Dead Freaks! This episode is a celebration of Bob Weir's birthday and a dive into his unique and ever-changing guitar sound. I am joined by Alex Wise who is a fan, guitar player, and a radio host. We delve into a number of the shifting aspects of Bobby's guitar playing queuing up examples along the way. Afterwards there's a great chunk of live Grateful Dead to round out the show.
