Subject: CRD: The Prize by Semisonic

 

 

THE PRIZE by SEMISONIC from the EP PLEASURE on MCA.

Transcribed by John Chapman (Chapmanjm@aol.com)

 

Any corrections/edits welcome. Words in brackets mean

I'm probably wrong. Check out Semisonic, consisting of

Dan Wilson and John Munson from Trip Shakespeare, and

Jake Slichter ("a percussionist"). First full-length

CD due out in April. Email to Semisonic@aol.com

 

Intro: Strumming on D (6 bars or so)-see note below

Verse1: D

Night of a thousand verses

D Am

One thousand friends said have you heard

G D

What we expected

D

We are all working late and

D Am

Waiting to win a prize that we dont deserve

G D

And live to collect it

 

Chorus: F#m G

Cant you see Im weary

Em C D

Maybe this news can wait

Verse2:

Night of a thousand verses

One thousand strivers strain to hear

The voice thats left us

Magazines still have to sell us

Twelve master geniuses a year

Its all so shameless

 

Chorus: Repeat 2x, second time "Worried" not "Weary"

Bridge: B C G

Maybe there was a message in it

Em

(I dont know where you hid it)

B C G

Maybe there was a [P stamp] with it

Em

(I dont know where to fit it)

B C G

Tell me what kind of prize can you get

Em

(When you dont want to win it)

 

 

Then back to D for a few bars.

Then once through verse and chorus, with no words, and

with distorted guitar on top.

 

Then back to bridge exactly as above

Then chorus 2x.

 

When strumming on D, there is a little riff that is

D/E/F#/F#/G/F# (notes, not chords). If you're playing

D in the second fret, you can try to pick it while

holding the chord, like this:

 

E---2------0---2---2---4h--2p

B---3---3--------------------

G---1------------------------

D----------------------------

A----------------------------

E----------------------------

 

Try to keep the G and B strings from getting muted so

the chord continues to sound. You may find easier

places to play up the neck if you're on an electric.
