Waiting Tab

This is my first submitted tab, I hope it works for you guys

d- downstroke
u- upstroke

The change from down to up is really quick, it adds a
flare to the song though the song can be played without it.
It is possible to do these quick changes as hammer-ons and pull offs
though I am pretty sure Cake doesn't play it like that from the recording.
Also the change in the fourth set of strokes can be replaced
by just hitting the open E string though you will have to mute
the B string

Ok here is the basic format of the song for intro, verse
and chorus as far as I can tell there are no real variations

TIMING
Here is a sample verse.  I only wrote out the words
on which the chords change.  For simplicity's sake I did
not record the quick changes.
 So............. important.........think that we make

Now what I wrote down was the simple version.  Cake's guitarist
actually does a hammer on and a pull off on some of them

Enjoy!
