Sum 41
Still Waiting, tabbed from Letterman, 2002

Live they Tune their guitars 1/2 step but on the recording they have it in standard. Not
is lined up correctly.

*Update: August 11, 2008: For the orginial tab, i got the fingering from a live
But for the recorded version, they use different fingering/octives. I've finally changed 
E5
from the liver performance to the recorded version.

*Update: August 16, 2008: I found a track of Still Waiting on Youtube with the vocals 
so I can now hear the guitar part way better. Here is a link: 
OR just type in "Sum 41-still waiting instrumental" I did a lot of octive changes

Guitar 1-Deryck
Guitar 2-Dave
Guitar 3,4,&5-studio overdub


[Intro] Guitar 1 only (you can remove the octive of the power chord, your choice)

 ways, so its the same chord, just in a different position on the neck:
