Bobby Weir gave his first-ever guitar lesson this week, to the winner of an online promotion in support of HeadCount.

Check out the video highlights here.

Jason E. of Palmetto, FL won not only a virtual lesson on the Lively platform but also a D'Angelico guitar signed by Weir. The promotion was staged through Fandiem and raised over $30,000 for HeadCount to support voter registration and education.

Weir, who is on tour right now with his band The Wolf Bros., is an original member of HeadCount's board of directors and continues to support the organization in creative and generous ways.  He is also a spokesperson for D'Angelico guitars, a relationship that was sparked in 2015 when Weir played a custom D'Angelico on stage at the Fare Thee Well reunion concerts. That guitar was later auctioned by HeadCount for over half a million dollars, supporting 17 different Grateful Dead-affiliated charities.
