Grateful Dead - Scarlet Begonias tab

Scarlet Begonias -> Fire on the Mountain -- Grateful Dead


The Grateful Dead rarely played Scarlet Begonias and Fire on the Mountain seperate from 
and this is a tabulature of the two songs and the segment between them. It's a real 
thing to play and it's one of their best jams ever.

SCARLET BEGONIAS > FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN SEGMENT

Key: B
Scale: B Mixolydian

(Either, vibrato slowly)

|---------------------------|
|---7~~~---9--7~~~---5~~~---|
|---8~~~---9--8~~~---6~~~---|
|---9~~~---9--9~~~---7~~~---|
|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|

Slow the pace of playing down a whole bunch, both Bobby and Jerry parts should just be 
B mixolydian segments, use lots of vibratos.

Small Example:
|---------------11------------------------|
|---12~---10h12----12-10-9----------------|
|--------------------------11-8~-8--6/8---|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|

Have all of the string/key instruments aside from one of the guitar parts stop playing 
awhile, and start a B -> A progression(Fire on the Mountain)

Example:
    B                 A
|--------7--------------------------------|
|---7~-----9p7--------5~-------4/5--4/5---|
|---8~---------9-8-9--6~-------5/6--5/6---|
|---9~----------------7~-------6/7--6/7---|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|

After a couple measures of that, have the rest of the strings/keys come in, now on a B>A 
which starts Fire on the Mountain

FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN

Bobby Riff (Throughout most of the song)

    B                          A
|---------x-7--7------7-----7-------x-5--5-x-x-x------x-5-5---|
|--------x-------7------7----------x-------x-x-x-----x--------|
|-------x--------8------8---------x--------x-x-x----x---------|
|---9--x-----------9------9----7-x---------x-x-x-7-x----------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat that, mix it up all you want, that's just the main structure of it.

Phil Riff

|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------9--9------9-----9-----7--7----------------------|
|------------9------9-----------------7-7-5-7-5---------|
|---7----------7------7----5--------------------5-6-7---|

Once again, repeat and mix up

|---------9-9---------------------7-7-------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
    Fire..........Fire on the Mountain......

All of Jerry's soloing is in B mixolydian, put a lot of emphasis on B when needed, and 
on A when needed, makes it sound beautiful.
