Artist: The Afters
Song Title: Wait
CD: I wish We All Could Win
Tabbed by: Daniel Van Wingerden

Comments: DanVW36@hotmail.com

This awesome song is off of The Afters new CD. It's an amazing acoustic song and I 
this tab is 100% correct if you take the time to learn it in it's entirety. As always, refer 
the song for timing and rhythm.

You can play the song in standard tuning if you want, but it's going to be a half step higher.

TUNING: Standard Flat (Eb, G#, C#, F#, Bb, Eb)

Guides:
s - Slide
h - Hammer
P - pluck all notes at once (Not strumming)
S - Strum the notes with your thumb

Chords Used: C  Am Em Gm Dm Fm G  F

And that's all there is to it. A little daunting at first, I know.
But once you get the hang of it, it's easy to play. Have fun guys.
God bless

i'm confused why you wrote standard flat tuning and then chose to write G# C# F# instead of Ab Db and Gb. seems like writing them all flats would help avoid confusion a little bit. good to see someone tabbing the afters.

i'm not 100% sure but on the last part that he s singing "shine on me" repeatedly i think it alternates between playing the C to F that you have written and A minor to F minor. try it out and see what you think. if this is confusing you can e-mail me at haglersp@titan.sfasu.edu. otherwise a really nice tab.
