    Default The Ripple that could have been...

    Fingers crossed this isn’t duplicate content, I’ve searched the Cafe to be sure...

    This video discusses the history of The Grateful Dead’s “Ripple” and has interesting content with Dawg. He demonstrates what he “would have played if allowed to enter the song sooner”. Mandolin content starts after about the one-minute mark.

    Enjoy!

    IMHO, it's wonderfully arranged as released. The focus is on the lyric and melody of the simple little tune. Weir ads just enough sparkle throughout the song with his capoed 7th fret acoustic part (right side). Grisman does 2 single lines in choruses, one panned left, the other right. Then plays for the chorus ride-outs at the end. Perfect arranging.
