Waves Tab

Waves by Guthrie Govan

Tabbed by: David Gildour; if you have noticed any mistakes, you have any questions or 
suggestions - davidgildour@gmail.com

Tab is only for intro, it's pointless to me to tab his solos, which are highly likely 
improvised. Also, they are fuckin fast.

I decided to add these tabs because I've seen that there is one (literally) tab for 
Waves' intro, and it's not complete.

I tabbed this from Guthrie's video where he is performing Waves on Lick Library (you can 
find it easily on yt).

This riff is crazy, I love it, however it may be difficult for some of you to play it in 
proper timing. It's not very easy (played on almost entire neck in legato, quite fast), 
but it's not too hard. Try it by yourself, and you will know what I'm talking about.

Tuning: Standard E

The numbers under the tabs are the fingers to use
