                      The Waitresses-Christmas Wrapping
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quite a lot of parts to this. The different verse parts are there to highlight the 
fills. It may have
been a mistake to try and get as much detail in, but the fills are pretty integral. I missed at
least one out, before the jingle bells riff in the second chorus. I'm sure there's 
loads more in there,
and you'll need to play along with the recording and listen hard to get the ghost 
notes and pick up the
rhythm.

Anyway. This is my first attempt at a tab. I've seen a few requests on forums and 
Youtube and I thought
it would be nice to get a rough version uploaded before Christmas.

The parts are played in the order:-

Intro

Verse riff 1

Verse riff 2 repeat X4

Verse end

Mid verse

Verse riff 1

Verse riff 3

Verse riff 2

Verse end

Bridge 1

Chorus 1

Verse riff 1

Verse riff 4

Verse riff 1

Verse end

Mid verse

Verse riff 2

Verse riff 5

Verse riff 2

Verse end

Bridge 2

Chorus 2 repeat X3

Jingle bells

Chorus 2 repeat to fade
