www.DeadTix.info Grateful Dead - THE BEST VERSION OF "RIPPLE" EVER! 02-20-71 If you listen you will hear Jerry's voice "come through the music"! Amazing work on the house boards that night. This is 100% the best electric ripple out there! "Ripple" Key G Time signature: 4/4 Chords used: G, D, C, A, F#, G7, Am Cover versions - Chris Hillman, Jane's Addiction, Perry Farrell, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Rick Danko, Dar Williams Like many folk songs, "Ripple" addresses itself as a song and an instrument of the performers' emotional expression. Several lines throughout the song echo the 23rd Psalm of the Bible. The signature lines in this song were played by mandolin master David Grisman. The songwriter, Robert Hunter, wrote this song in 1970 in London in the same afternoon he wrote "Brokedown Palace" and "To Lay Me Down" (reputedly also drinking an entire bottle of retsina in the process). The song debuted August 18, 1970 at The Fillmore in San Francisco.
