This is "Patiently" by Journey.  Amazing song that I understand was written in 10
by Steve Perry and Neal Schon.  I could be wrong so dont bank me on that.  One of the greatest
and a very underestimated guitar player.  Enjoy!!

The chorus is just a little different.
It is played as follows:

E--2---------------2---------------1---------------1--------------|

After the chorus it goes back into the verse and just keeps repeating until it gets to
bridge right before the solo:

After the solo there is an acoustic part that I have no idea how to do and if anyone
help with that, that would be great.  Hope you liked it, its a great song.  Any questions
comments feel free to email me.
