Prague Tab

   
Artist: Damien Rice
Album: O
Song: Prague (Hidden Track)
----------------------------------
Tabbed by: Sam Ghods
July 30th, 2005

This tab is a result of listening to the album as well as watching
live recordings such as the one at KCRW.com. The first bit is an
exact transcription of the first 32 measures. That should give you
a good enough idea of how to play the basic melody and where to put
your hands... from there, you can just improvise the exact melody
(as Damien does during live performances). I've also included some
of one of the electric guitar parts, and the chords Damien uses for
the main chorus section. Both the verse riff and the chorus chords
have been verified through live concert video footage. There's a
lot more that can be done, but this should be enough to get you
started playing. Enjoy!

* Damien fingerpicks the verses, but uses a pick for the main
  chorus part. He pulls it off by holding the pick with his index
  finger pressed against his palm during the verses, fingerpicking
  with his other fingers, then moves the pick to between his index
  finger and thumb to play the chorus chords. He does this on a 
  number of his songs.
* (Notes in parentheses are hardly played.)

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/damien_rice/prague_tab_ver_3.html ]
    Am                  D        Am                 D

And it goes on just like that. My best guess for the electric part
that comes in is basically:


VERSE - ELECTRIC
======================
    Em                            C7                                  
e:--12-------------12----------------------------------------15----|
B:-----12-12h13-12----12-12h13-12-13-------------13----------------|
G:-----------------------------------12-12h14-12----12-12h14-------|
D:-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A:-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E:-----------------------------------------------------------------|

    Em                            C7                                  
e:--15-------------12----------------------------------------------|
B:-----12-12h13-12----12-12h13-12-13-------------13----------------|
G:-----------------------------------12-12h14-12----12-12h14-12----|
D:-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A:-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E:-----------------------------------------------------------------|

    Am                                    D     Am         D 
e:--------------------------------------|
B:--12h13-12-12h13-12-12h13-12-12h13-12-|
G:--------------------------------------|
D:--------------------------------------|
A:--------------------------------------| X 4
E:--------------------------------------|


Then for the chorus section, the chords are (listen to recording
for strumming pattern):

MAIN CHORUS
======================
    Em      C       Am      B11/E
e:--0-------0-------0-------0--------------------------------------|
B:--0-------1-------1-------0--------------------------------------|
G:--0-------0-------2-------2--------------------------------------|
D:--9-------2-------2-------1--------------------------------------|
A:--7-------3-------0-------2--------------------------------------|
E:--0-------3--------------(0)-------------------------------------|

He continues to play these chords (with slight variation) through
the end of the song ("Darlin'... here's to you..."), until he
resumes singing part of the verse, at which point he switches back
to the verse riff.

That should do it. Shoot questions/corrections to
