The Waiting (Standard Tuning: EADG)

::Okay so here's how I believe the song goes:: \:Slide up /:Slide down
{H}:hammer on {P}: pull off

P.S., the sliding in the song isn't exactly needed, but the bass player does slide in 
song, it's up to you.

Intro: In the very beginning of the song do some sliding on the A string.

D-----------------7---0---------------------7-----7----------|
A------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------|

G----11----10----------------12---11-----13-\14--14-13-12------------|
D-------------------7--000--------------------------------0000-------|
A--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------|

The Verses:
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----7--------------------------------------------------9---------9---|
A---------0---------5-5\12-0-------5-5\12-0----5-----------9---------9-|
E---------------3---------------3------------3-----3\7-------3\7-------|

G------------------------------------------------------7---------|
D------------5----------------5---------------7777---------------|
A--------------5----------------5----000000---------0-----10-9-7-|
E-----7/3-------------7\3----------------------------------------|

D-----------------------17-16-14-13------------------------------------------|

INTRO
VERSE
CHORUS
VERSE
