                     Colour In Waves - SOUTH

My best mate and I elected this song "Song of 2004" (tied with Graham's Freaking Out).
The tab shows which chord is played (-ish) by the acoustic guitar during the intro. The
rest is the electric guitar part. The chords indicated above the lyrics are either those
played by the acoustic guitar or implied chords. Enjoy!

Tuning: standard

hi there, great South - Colours In Waves tab. It's great to see that someone other than me is a fan of South haha. Well anyways i was just wondering if you saw the new live performances they did. They performed a great version of paint the silence and a NEW song called Shallow. I was wondering if you could help me tab the song Shallow, i've tried many times but i still cant figure any of the chords out! it would mean alot if you could help me out. It's probably one of the most amazing songs i've heard this year so far. Well if you havent here is a link of the vid, you can also go to there offical website to check them out.

Oh, I think the opening chord(s) are [x70077] though, then moving to [070077] for that slightly deeper sound.
