	         Stay (Wasting Time) - Dave Matthews Band
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : a4hair
e-mail: a4hair@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard 5-String BEADG

Note: Lessard plays this song on a 5-string bass and is tabbed as such. 
However, there are very few notes on the B string and so it is possible to get
around this.  The easiest way is when you hit the B|--1-- play a A|--3--
instead.

4/4 time

Rest 16 beats before coming in.
Intro:Slapped
G|----------------WR---------------------------|

A|----------------WR----------8h10/12----12\---|
E|----------------wR---5h7/10------------------|
B|--5h7p5-5h7\2---WR---------------------------|
Don't take that intro so literal, you can slap improv to make it sound better
to you.

Here is a mellow root note kind of improv.


Outro:Slapped
G|-------------------------------------|
D|---------------------5----6---6------|
A|-----5--6-7-7-8-\--------------------|Play till fade out
E|--6---------------3-----4---4--------|
B|-------------------------------------|
The easiest way to solo durring this portion is either play up an octave or
solo using the Bb blues scale.

Again, just play losely and feel free to improv as Lessard does.
