Wax and Wane - written by Cocteau Twins
produced by Cocteau Twins/Ivo © 1983.
Transliterated by Jason Baxter Jan 2001.

Note that this tab is made up of three basic riffs which are repeated
several times in the song; so the tab below consists of these four 
riffs and then a schedule (with lyrics) of when to play them.
