                                    DAY JOB
               As Recorded by Gin Blossoms
Here is Day Job: my personal favorite from Congratulations I'm Sorry.
Scott Johnson plays guitars 2 and 3 and plays the first lead.
Jesse Valenzuela plays guitars 1 and 4 and plays the second lead.
The only thing I'm wrong about is the first lead fill in the second verse.

It starts with an organ swell and panned feedback in A.
Then, as the volume swells, it starts with:

lead riff 1
e:-------12----|-------12-----|-------12---|-------12---|
b:---12--------|---12---------|---12-------|---12-------|
g:14-----------|13------------|11----------|15----------|
d:-------------|--------------|------------|------------|
a:-------------|--------------|------------|------------|
e:-------------|--------------|------------|------------|

guitar 2 plays this:
     A----------|-E------------|-B---------|-F#---------|

Rhythm Part 1
Then guitar 2 switches to:
d:-4-4--4-4--4-4-|-4--2-2-----|
a:-4-4--4-4--4-4-|-4--2-2-----|repeat one more time
e:-2-2--0-2--0-2-|-2--0-0-----|

guitar 1 swithches to:Rhythm Part 2
e:------0------2--|-----0------------|
b:---2-------2----|---2-------2----0-|repeat one more time
g:3--------3------|3-------3---------|
d:----------------|------------------|

well we've been here once before, and we've stuck it out for more, when we come around,
we'll settle down the cracks below the floor. has it been eleven years, since i stood
here with my peers? well we started out to conquer doubt and frisbee

guitar 1 plays:
d:4---------------------4-4-4-|-4--------------------4-4-4-|
a:4---------------------4-4-4-|-4--------------------4-4-4-|
e:2---------------------2-2-0-|-2--------------------2-2-0-|

g:2--2-2-2-2--4--4-4-4-4-|-------------------|
d:2--2-2-2-2--4--4-4-4-4-|-4-4--4-4-4-4-4--2-|
a:0--0-0-0-0--2--2-2-2-2-|-4-4--4-4-4-4-4--2-|
e:-----------------------|-2-2--0-2-0-2-2--0-|repeat this once more


guitar 2 plays:
e:-----------0---|-----------0---|
b:-------------0-|-------------0-|
g:3--------------|3--------------|then, same as guitar 2 at the A to B change
d:4--------------|4--------------|
a:4--------------|4--------------|
e:2--------------|2--------------|

so basically the verse is
F#5----F#5-E5-|--F#5----F#5-E5-| A-----B----|F#5--E5-F#5-E5-F#5--E5----

Chorus:
i should've been a whole lot farther, i'm never going back to college, for just one good 
day job

then the chorus is the same for both guitars. it's just:
A-------|E--------|B--------|F#--------

then guitar 1 plays:
e:--------12-|--------12-|
b:----12-----|----12-----|
g:14---------|13---------|

while guitar 2 plays:
A-----------|-B---------

you're not missing much for sure, only everything that's yours. and at times it fails
and we're full sail in the gutter.is this home cause i forget? if it is, then thanks a lot,
cause i can't pretend to know one end from the other.

the first time, the chorus ends by going back to rhythm part 1, but does not repeat.
in the second verse, there are two fills played at the end of each half verse.
the first fill i don't really know but i play this as a substitute:
feedback--then w/ wah wah
e:5--2----------------|
b:5--2----------------|
g:-----4-2-4-2-4b(6)--|




the second fill is:
e:-------------------------------|
b:-------------------------------|
g:---2----2--4--2-4b(6){A.H.}----|
d:4----4-------------------------|





then after the second chorus, both guitars walkdown:
guitar 1 plays:
e:-----------------------------------------------------|
b:-----------------------------------------------------|
g:-----------------------------------------------------|
d:4--3--2----------------------------------------------|
a:----------4--3--2--0---------------------------------|
e:-----------------------4--3--2--0-{whammy dip){-1----|


guitar 2 plays:
e:----------------------------------------------0--0--0|
b:------------------------------------------s/5--------|
g:6--5--4-------------------------1--------------------|
d:----------6--5--4---------------2--------------------|
a:--------------------7--6--5--4--2--------------------|
e:---------------------------------0-------------------|

then, the solo, by scotty on guitar 3:

e:-------------------|-------------------------------|-----------------|
b:-----5-------------|----------------5--------------|------4-4b(5)----|
g:4s/6---6s\4--2-----|2--4--2--4s/6----6s\4--2--4--2-|---2--4-4b(5)----|
d:----------------4--|-------------------------------|4----------------|
a:-------------------|-------------------------------|-----------------|
e:-------------------|-------------------------------|-----------------|

e:------------------|------------------------|
b:(6)r(4)-----------|------------------------|
g:(6)r(4)-2---------|------------------------|drum fill (go phil!)
d:-----------4--2---|-4----------------------|
a:------------------|------------------------|
e:------------------|------------------------|


e:-------------------|----------------|--------------------|---5--5----5--5--7--5--|
b:-----5---5---5---5-|-5--7-----(7)\--|------5---5---5--7--|---------7-------------|
g:4s/6---------------|----------------|4s/6----------------|-----------------------|
d:-------------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------------------|
a:-------------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------------------|
e:-------------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------------------|



         hold bent seventh and play it bent( is if playing the ninth fret)
e:7b(9)---------7--7-|--7--7----(7)r5----|------------------|----------------------|
b:-------------------|------------------7|-(7)--------------|-(7)------------------|
g:-------------------|-(gradual release)-|--(hold out, and let feedback)-----------|
d:-------------------|-------------------|------------------|----------------------|
a:-------------------|-------------------|------------------|----------------------|
e:-------------------|-------------------|------------------|----------------------|
guitar one plays these chords during the lead:
F#5---E5-F#5-E5-F#5--E5-----repeat--then--A-----B---F#5---E5-F#5-E5-F#5
then repeat that phrase again.

then jesse on guitar 1 plays lead riff 1 behind the second half of the lead, which is:


e:--(with tremelo picking)|------------------|---------5----7b(9)r7--5-|---------------|
b:-----------------------|-----------2-----5-|-(5)s/7-----7------------|-7-------------|
g:-----------------------|2--2---4-----------|-------------------------|---------------|
d:4--4--------2--2---4---|-------------------|-------------------------|---------------|
a:------4--4-------------|-------------------|-------------------------|---------------|
e:-----------------------|-------------------|-------------------------|---------------|

then both guitars play:
e:--------12---|--------12---|14b(16)r(14)------|
b:----12-------|----12-------|------------------|
g:14-----------|13-----------|------------------|
d:-------------|-------------|(guitar 3 only)---|
a:-------------|-------------|------------------|
e:-------------|-------------|------------------|
                                             guitar 1 plays Rhythm Part 2
                                             guitar 2 technically plays Rhythm Part 
1(since through the
                                              wonders of modern technology, Scotty's 
guitar 3 is
                                             overdubbed.)
you're not missing much for sure, only everything tht's yours, and at times it fails and
we're full sail in the gutter. is this home cause i forgot, if it is, then thanks a
lot, cause i can't pretend to know one end from the other.

the first lead fill in the third verse is:
e:-(with delay)---------------------|
b:----------------------------------|
g:---14-14-14-14-16-14-16b(18)------|
d:---14-14-14-14-----14-------------|
a:----------------------------------|
e:----------------------------------|


the second lead fill is:
e:--------------------------------|
b:17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17---------|
g:14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14--16b(18)|
d:14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14---------|
a:-----------------(gradual bend)-|
e:--------------------------------|

then the fill between choruses is:
e:-x-17-17-17-x-17-17-17-x-17-17-17-x-17-17-17-x-|
b:-x-17-17-17-x-17-17-17-x-17-17-17-x-17-17-17-x-|

a:-x----------x----------x----------x----------x-|
e:-----------------------------------------------|

a:---------------------------|------------------------------------|
e:---------------------------|------------------------------------|

e:-0-0-|0-0h2-2-0-0h2-2-0-0h2-2-0-0h2-2-|-0-0h2-2-0------------------|
