Uncle John's Band
Grateful Dead
Tabbed by RainLord

This is my first tab, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes or difficulty. I tried
listen very carefully to the lead parts of the song (in G major by the way) so some of
is written is very faint, listen closely to hear it. I'd thank the author of version 1 
the help with the chords, but they're anonymous right now so I can't mention them by
Sorry.

Anyway, have fun!
