Jerry was my Teacher


"It was March 1962 when I invested in a hundred-dollar banjo and began lessons on Tuesday nights at Dana Morgan Studio Music Shop in downtown Palo Alto. A young guy with a shock of black hair, a goatee, and black horn-rimmed glasses on his nose came out to meet me when I checked in for my first lesson.
"Are you my seven o'clock?"
"Yeah."
"What's your name?"
"Andy Bernstein"
"I'm Jerry Garcia. Follow me."
