Lesson notes

*Touch Of Grey*was a song that the Grateful Dead starting playing live in 1982 but became a hit 5 years later when it was released on In The Dark. It is notable as really the only ‘hit’ the Dead ever had, breaking into the Billboard Top 10, and also for a memorable video showing the band as skeletons playing live. The song features some basic strumming over quite a few barre chords, mostly from the keys of E and B major. This lesson includes the opening riff played on the bass, as well as a very distinctive fill played in the chorus.
