The Dead Covers Project
Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2014 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share their 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. Need a little inspiration? During February, you can also check out an exclusive video playlist featuring a handful of hot submissions at www.facebook.com/gratefuldead. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube!

We'll segue into IKYR from almost anything :), but this seems particularly "right", especially when we started playing IKYR in A (for years, we played it in E). Hope you like it.
Here's one for DeadCoversProject 2014. Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed playing it.
seems like some of the video submissions are not getting to the official you tube site ... i submitted my own a while back and as of yet nadda
Lead singer, lead guitar, the arrangement, all of it! Great song choice as well.
I've been really digging everyone's stuff! I hope you enjoy my submission this year, missed doing it last year. One of my favorite Hunter/Garcia tunes.
I play the way Jerry taught me how, from the heart straight to the keys. A few bad notes and all. I miss you Jerry.
Was just wondering: Our DCP (Victim or the Crime, by accident of birth) has around 1700 views (putting it in about 6th place of the most viewed videos), and yet does not show up on the Dead's YouTube list. How come?
