I actually really dig the 6/23/04 version of Llama. 


anyone else ever realize that Llama is a blues song?

Actually, someone made that comment in the show club after I referred to Possum as being a blues song.  I had never really paid that much attention to the chord progression.  I guess that's why they use it during special guest appearances so much.  It's easy for the special guests to pick up.

Possum is very similar in structure to Skynyrd's 'Swamp Music'.

I wouldn't say it's a blues song, but does have a blues progression..

Right I don't know much about theory but don't many rock songs that aren't really "blues" per se use blues chord progressions?

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

absolutely, I-IV-V is probably the most commonly used chord progression of all time

i think there was a youtube vid displaying that and how 2 or 3 other phish tunes sound almost exactly alike teh skynyrd.
It's a great day on the interweb, people.

You guys know the rule... If you weren't there, it wasn't anything special...
