Missing Weir Songs

This lists all the songs played by Bob Weir with bands other than the Grateful Dead that are not yet included in my index of Bob Weir 'solo' songs. The main source is WeirBase in DeadBaseXI, but I have also used various online sources (eg for Furthur Festival jams in 1997).

This should be seen primarily as notes to myself. Some of the songs will be included in my Weir index as soon as I get round to it. Others (eg where Weir had very little to do with a song played by a band he was sitting in with) won't get included but are listed here for reference and for completeness. Finally, there are some songs I would like to include but haven't yet identified - any help gratefully received.
