Jerry's Right Hand

I dunno. The guy's been dead for 10 years and I can still get a laugh out of him. Today was a lousy day in the desert, for me anyways. I guess I needed a little laugh to make things right with the world. I found this and I found it funny.

(Post script: Garcia lost the top part of his middle finger at the age of 5. His brother accidentally axed it off while the boys were cutting firewood on a camping trip. Later, Jerry's dad was killed, swept away by the undercurrent, while fishing in the Columbia river.)

Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile...

Is that story for real? Garcia should have been a blues musician. How do you do the animation
He was a blues musician, my errant friend.

The animation is magic.
What did Jerry play? The harmonica? Surely he wasn't a guitarist with that missing finger.
