Waiting to Know You  The Fiery Furnaces

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard
Note: Probably your best bet with this one is to fingerpick it, and
forget about the outro if you're playing solo.

For the outro guitar solo, just play the bass notes of the given chords:
[G] [F#] [E] [G] [F#] [E] [C] [Am]  
over the chords. The piano does most of the work in the outro and would be
nigh-impossible to replicate on the guitar.
