Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on Dead.net over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned!
The Dead Covers Project 2016
This year's submissions period has ended. Check out all the great performance with the Official 2016 DEAD COVERS PROJECT playlist.
Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2016 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share your love for the music and magic of the Dead through video. Show off your musical chops and you just might find yourself front and center on Dead.net during the month of February! The rules are simple - all video submissions must contain a song either written by or recorded by the Dead. How that song is interpreted, however, is entirely up to you.
Upload your video to YouTube, tag it "DeadCoversProject," and we'll make it available to view on the band's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/gratefuldead. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube.

There are some Karaoke covers of Dead tunes. Mostly Truckin and Casey Jones. If you dig hard you can find Big River, some traditional blues. The Mars Hotel Out takes has about the best Scarlett B Karaoke/instrumental version I've heard!
How about a sub category for next years Cover Project to include a Karaoke award? Sorry singers, take the backup position. Let's build up a home made Karaoke library!!!
Here's an acoustic version of Fair Ellender with guitar, bass, fiddle and two voices:
Going down the road feeling bad - I filmed this in Eastbourne in the UK a few years back and still enjoy playing it live to local audiences.
