The Waiting (Standard Tuning: EADG)

::Okay so here's how I believe the song goes:: \:Slide up /:Slide down
{H}:hammer on {P}: pull off

P.S., the sliding in the song isn't exactly needed, but the bass player does slide in 
song, it's up to you.

Intro: In the very beginning of the song do some sliding on the A string.
G---11--12--11----------------12---11------------------------|
D-----------------7---0---------------------7-----7----------|
A------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------|

G----11----10----------------12---11-----13-\14--14-13-12------------|
D-------------------7--000--------------------------------0000-------|
A--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------|

The Verses:
G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----7--------------------------------------------------9---------9---|
A---------0---------5-5\12-0-------5-5\12-0----5-----------9---------9-|
E---------------3---------------3------------3-----3\7-------3\7-------|

G------------------------------------------------------7---------|
D------------5----------------5---------------7777---------------|
A--------------5----------------5----000000---------0-----10-9-7-|
E-----7/3-------------7\3----------------------------------------|

The Chorus
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------7---------------------------5-4--4-5--7-7-----|
A---10\-9\-7\-5-------0-0----10\-9\-7\-5-------0-00-----------------5-5-|
E----------------3-2-----------------------3-2--------------------------|

The Bridge
G---------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------|
A--------\9/------------\9-----------9--------9-9-9-------|
E---\7---------2----\7------/2--\7-7---2--7-7-------------|

G---------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------77---------0--000--24--5-5---44444444444----------------|
A---0------0---24-----------------------------------------------|

The Estatic Bass Fill

G--14-----14{H}16{P}14-------------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------17-16-14-13------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------17---------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------17/1------------------------------------|

So that's it, the order of the song is as follows:
INTRO
VERSE
CHORUS
VERSE
CHORUS
BRIDGE
VERSE
CHORUS
OUTRO (Which is the intro playing and then moving to the chorus)

Accurate but a little bit hard to get the timing down. My fault I guess. 4/5
