Composer: David Grisman

Jerry Garcia performed Dawgnation a couple of times with David Grisman in 1994. They also played the song at Grisman's studio. It is a studio recording that is included on the DGQ-20 album. The same track is included on the Acoustic Disc sampler. The DGQ-20 booklet provides brief notes about each song. The notes for Dawgnation are:
Many happy hours were spent in Dawg Studios when Jerry Garcia would come over to jam. Between August 1990 and July 1995 (just three weeks before his untimely death) Jerry and David logged some 40-odd recording sessions. This tune was written by David during one such get-together, and this first recording was made the following day. It is now heard regularly at the DGQ's live performances.
