  Rate this tab:
this is scarlet begonias by the dead, the way i've always played it
i didn't see it in your archive
grateful dead
scarlet begonias

this is the way i've always played it
the first line comes straight from a show they played at cornell
in 1977, phils bass booms throughout the whole song

drums and guitar come in first

I.
B2x
— / 16 x 16 x 16

— 2 2 2 / 14 x 14 x 14 6 7 / 9 x 9 x 9


now this isnt the way phil plays it in this particular concert but
this is how i play it and if you dont like it just change it up
its just e to b

II.

E B 2x

— 6 x 7 x 9 9 6 7p6 0
— 7 7 6 x 9 x
— 7

A



— 5 55 0 0 4 0 7 5 5 5 5 00 0 4 0 7 5 5 5 00 4 0 7 5 55 00 4 00

repeat intro part in b then go back into e to b part and into a part,
it does this a couple of times and then instead of going into the e
to b part they play:
______
III.
F# B / 1. E
— 11 11 11 x 9 11 |
— |
— 9 9 | / 7
— 7 7 7 7 5 5 5 |
_________
/ 2.EF# AB

— 2 4 7 9 11b1/2b11 9
— 2 4 4 6 7 9 9 11
— 0 2/4 2 4/6 5 7/9 7 9/11

the order goes like this

I
II
I
II
I
III
II
I
II etc...

thats all i know, usually they will go from this into fire on the
mountain, which is a b to a progression, but its really easy to
figure out, so try this. later, jr
