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, phil’s bass booms throughout the whole song

drums and guitar come in first

I.
    B							2x
-                                             /  16 x 16 x 16

-  2  2  2 / 14 x 14 x 14  6 7 / 9 x 9 x 9 \

now this isn’t the way phil plays it in this particular concert but 
this is how i play it and if you don’t like it just change it up  
it’s just e to b

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

-  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
