SONG: Prince Caspian
ARTIST: Phish
ALBUM: Billy Breathes
TABBED BY: Tedrick

I was looking at the only tab for this song on UG and determined it was wrong so I
decided to tab it for myself and share it with you guys. Lucky you! ;) Anyway I love
Phish (I live in Vermont where they started) so here’s my interpretation of Prince
Caspian.

Standard Tuning and Some Distortion


This song starts off with a long intro that I wont bother tabbing out, but then some
distorted guitar comes in at about 1:34 (which is the part that I tabbed out) Note that
I use the chords G9 and C9 but you could also use G and C9, in my opinion it doesn’t
make a huge difference and G9 and C9 are easier to play 

INTRO

   With nothing to return to but the demons in their caves

If you listen closely to the “And the children in the fields all sowing seed and
chaffing wheat” part you will hear a guitar part that’s a bunch of single notes
being played fast. It’s really hard to tell what Tre is playing but it’s probably
a few notes in the G major scale. I’ll take a wild stab at it, its something like.

The outro I’m also not totally sure about but again I’ll try...

(1.34) [INTRO]

(1.46) Oh, to be prince caspian afloat upon the waves [MAIN RIFF]
(1.59) Oh, to be prince caspian afloat upon the waves [MAIN RIFF]
(2.12) Oh, to be prince caspian afloat upon the waves [MAIN RIFF]
(2.25) Oh, to be prince caspian, [MAIN RIFF x.5]
(2.31) With nothing to return to but the demons in their caves [RIFF 2]

(2.38) Oh, to be prince caspian afloat upon the waves [MAIN RIFF]
(2.50) Oh, to be prince caspian afloat upon the waves [MAIN RIFF]
(3.03) Oh, to be prince caspian afloat upon the waves [MAIN RIFF]
(3.16) Oh, to be prince caspian, [MAIN RIFF x.5]
(3.21) And the children in the fields all sowing seed and chaffing wheat [RIFF 3]
(3.28) Oh, to be prince caspian with stumps instead of feet [RIFF 3]

(3.35) Oh to be prince Caspian [RIFF 3]
(3.41) Oh to be prince Caspian [RIFF 3]
(3.48) Oh to be prince Caspian [RIFF 3]
(3.54) Oh... [RIFF 3]

(4.54) [OUTRO]

Well that’s it, I’m almost positive the chords are right but RIFF 3 and the OUTRO are a
little shaky, anyway, I might tab out the actual intro (0.00-1.34) so look for it. Have
fun!

He doesn't play a C in that main riffy thing. If you play along with the song, you can tell he's using a different form of a G. It just doesnt sound right the way you tabbed it out.

That's not G9. It's just a G with a D in the B string. It's not C9 either, it's Cadd9, but that's not even right.

How could you possibly think it goes back to C there? It's a G and theres no D in the C!!

Cmon!
