She?s waiting for another love
She?s waiting for another love

(Waiting for another lover)
(Hoping for a time that she?ll find another)....

PERFORMANCE NOTES:

- If you play this song with 2 guitarists, have one play
the chords as shown above, and have the other person
do some picking around the chord shapes. This helps to
spice up the tune and add some layering. You can hear
an electric picking the chord shapes on the recording.

- During the guitar solo and the outro chorus, the rhythm
guitarist should add a few quick extra stabs while playing
the G-chord in the main riff (listen to the song to hear
exactly what this variation sounds like).

- The chords in brackets in verses 2 and 3 are more or less
what the bass plays, and they act as transitions between the
main chords. You can play these bracketed chords if you like,
but it can be a bit tricky to make this fast series of changes.
