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!
TODAY'S FEATURED VIDEO
One more new cover for the 2015 Dead Covers Project.
Scarlet Begonias into psycho-jive music, then to a brief tune we invented on the spot ("Dream"), then segue into I Know You Rider. Scarlet -> IKYR is our preferred way to get to Rider, usually with some interesting detour(s). And to make it authentic, Scarlet even has a vocal flub!
Here's one of our 2015 Dead Covers Project entries. Hope everyone enjoys. Bimini Road is based in North Alabama. So that's weird.
Here's my second contribution in as many years:
folks, feel free to add whatever variants you like, but be sure you're tagging your clips "DeadCoversProject" (without the quotes) to ensure that our various filters see them.
Really nice version of this tune - nice job, folks!
Please send me a PM with the link to one of the clips you're seeing this issue with. Thanks much!
Here's one from The Silent Trees. Looking forward to Chicago this summer! :)
