Tweezer

This version of Tweezer is chunky peanut butter - modest and simple, but not necessarily bland. Trey seems to forget about the "Uncle Ebeneezer" verse for a little while, but they eventually get to it. Fish breaks it down again at the start of the jam, and it initially sounds to me like nobody wants to take the lead. The combination of Mike's envelope filter and Page's synth at 6:20 made me think I heard a sitar and a tanpura drone - somewhat appropriate, given that this is another laid-back Tweezer groove, half a world away from the laser intensity of 12/2/95. The jam gets a little momentum around 9:00, but is still sluggish, and Fishman attempts to give it a boost with a big fill at 10:40. Finally Trey realizes that he needs to do something up there, and trills for a bit before taking the wheel of the sedan, heading down another, more satisfying improvisational highway...

Grunkins Glad this made the chart. One of the most coherent Tweezers.
