                             WAIT TIL TOMORROW - John Mayer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: xadioriderx (Ryan)
Email:sk82x4@gmail.com

Tuning: Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb

This is the main part of the song, minus the solo. Mayer changes it up some here 
and there, quite a bit, but this will get you through the main parts!

Strum direction is listed above because that is one of the hardest things 
to gauge in this song. All deadened strums (except the rakes) are created
 like a palm mute but slightly away from the bridge so it completely deadens
 the strings. Your palm is just bouncing off the strings while youre making 
the strum - the best explanation is to try strumming the deadened strums with
 your only your palm. no sound? good, now add your pick in with it, you get 
deadened strums. 
Strums that are hyphenated together above the tab are quick - like you would 
play while palm muting  "down-up" on a single string - youre hand never leaves
 the strings on the down, it comes immediately up.

you can play the above for the verses, although he changes it up slightly here and there.
