Fantasies Rogue Wave
Tabbed by Johan
I pieced this together myself, and it's not perfect, but definitely does the
(8/21/10 Update: Sorry, I found some flaws, I'm embarrassed to have let them
slip in...I'll try to keep this thing as accurate as it can be.)
Capo on the 2nd fret.
Standard Tuning EADGBE
Chords Used: A, C, D, Em, G (not too tough)
I think it's more fun to put your own spin on a song, but if you want to try
and replicate the groove of Rogue Wave's version, you'll want to strum
something like this for those long E Minor stretches (bearing in mind that I
have split the 8 repeating beats into the first 4, and the second 4, as there
is variation and I don't want that to get missed...I'm labeling them A and B
for later reference):
A|1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & B| 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & | Over and over.
D D U D D U D D U
For an even more authentic sound, (referencing the strumming pattern I
mentioned above), you can do some minor finger maneuvering that would look
something like this (where "THIS" is the "B" chunk of that riff):
1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
E|-0---0-0---0-0---| B|-0---0-0---0-0---| G|-0---0-0---0-0---| D|-2---2-2---2-2---| A|-2---2-2---1-0---| E|-0---0-0---0-0---|
One last thing, I count this in 4/4, so that's how I'll be referencing the
number of times to repeat things. I guess if you wanted to you could do it
in 2/2 or 8/8 but I was never good enough in orchestra to learn or care about
the petty differences.
Em G, C G (2x)
Em (4x, percussion would come in here)
[Em]Give me a second if you like (4x)

[Em]Every [G]day is a [C]fanta[G]sy
[Em]Are you [G]with me? [C]Are you [G]with me?
[Em]I'll get you in the middle if you want it (4x)

Chorus (2x or more)
[Em]Every [G]day is a f[C]anta[G]sy
[Em]Are you [G]with me, [C]are you [G]with me?
Outro (repeat until satisfied)
I am in no way associated with Rogue Wave, their record label,
their image, name, or product. I just thought it would be
nice to make it easier for people to learn this tune since I
can't find a tab for it *anywhere*.
