chrismcguire634 @solargarlic78, Very well stated. There does seems to be a restlessness, tension and trepidation about following one central idea/theme throughout a type ll section. As you mentioned, Dick's is a great example of cohesiveness as well as the "Rock and Roll" Jam from 8/15/12 and countless others. I also see your point that in many regards it must be "easier" to follow one main idea rather than execute several scattered themes without much material binding them together. I'd like to add that forcing a transition must also be much more difficult. I think when Trey is having difficulty locking in with the band he has a tendency to throw as many ideas against the wall as possible to see what sticks and if nothing sticks he pulls the rip-chord. Hypothetically, when Trey is having issues if maybe he would play less (or nothing) and just listen, gather his thoughts and begin simply and follow one idea through to is completion then these problems would be minimized.

That being said, so far these shows do have me excited about the future, many many bright spots.
