Inspired by the Dead & Company concert I just attended....Here's me playing along to Grateful Dead song 'Bertha' Phil Lesh is a beast with a pick! Definitely helping my pick chops! From the 7th Grateful Dead album 'Grateful Dead (Skull and Roses)' released in 1971.
I'm playing my '74 Fender Jazz Bass through my '68 Ampeg B15N with a pick. Audio is from the camera.
