                  Don't Wait - Dashboard Confessional
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Alan

Tuning: Standard

This tab is not how Chris Carrabba plays the song, he plays it all flatted using some odd
chords. I tabbed it out using standard tuning so that you can play it and sing along with
friends without having to tune the guitar down.  That said,
all the base notes are basically correct, just some are played an octave higher then
on the cd (namely in the chorus). There are plenty of tabs of this song, but I think 
this is the easiest way to play it that sounds the closest to the real thing.
