I can't believe that this isn't higher up in the list! The whole song is near-flawless, and the guitar solo (especially 2:35-2:55) is honestly one of the best Jerry moments that I can think of.

I love the calm and quiet section after the first solo. So excited for what is coming next, but so mellow in the moment!
