Unreleased Jerry Garcia Footage To Hit Theaters
"I wanted to teach myself [to play guitar]," says Garcia in the new interview, below. "I wasn't really into [singing and writing lyrics. I got into that when we started performing. Playing the guitar was my main trip … Even so I wasted a lot of time in terms of learning. I still am not learning as well as I could be under different circumstances. But it's the only way I can interface my personality with the problem of learning. It's worth it for those moments where it's on and your technique isn't standing in the way."
The film captures The Grateful Dead's five-night stand at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco during the fall of 1974. Want a taste?
