		  While You're Waiting - Alkaline Trio
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tabbed this out by ear, pretty sure it's perfect.
Listen to the song for the rhythm, it's pretty easy to hear, and play.
Enjoy!

It all sounds really good and fits well, but its defiantly not the original bassline
