Here is the guitar tablature to "Sample in a Jar" by Phish. As usual, use this as a general guide, and listen to the song to get the timing down.

Sample in a Jar

Trey starts with this repeated twice as an intro (this is also the verse progression):

   A   C   G   D              A   E   Em   D
                   H    
|----------------------------------------------|
|-10---8---8---7--------------5---5---5----3---|
|--9---9---7---7--------------6---4---4----2---|
|-11--10---9---7-----7---7----7---6---5----4---|
|----------------7-9---9-----------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|

Drum Break.

Play the above progression twice for the first verse.

Chorus (4 times):

A   D   E   D  

One verse progression with distortion, then 2 more times as the second verse.

Chorus

The break is played as follows:  

C   D   A   G   C   D   E  (hang on the E)

Trey's fill:

    H P H P H P H P H P H
|--------------------------|
|-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9--|
|-7-9-7-9-7-9-7-9-7-9-7-9--|

Enjoy.
