Above The Waves by The Disco Biscuits
Written by Jon "The Barber" Gutwillig

Intro (in 4/4)
E|---------------------------------------|
B|------3-------0---0--3--3---3----3---3-|
G|2/4-4---2-2-2---0----2---------2-------| X 2 or 3 depends
D|---------------------0----0--------0---|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

(next part after intro goes to 3/4)
(this part is played one through over the 3 chords, then stays on the B after that)
  (A)
E|5h7-5---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----8p7-5-5h7--5-5h7-5---------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------7p6-4-4h6-4-4h6-4---------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------7p6-4-4h6-4-4h6-4---------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------7-5-4---|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------5-|

  (Bb)
E|6h8-6---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------9p8-6-6h8-6-6h8-6---------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------8p7-5-5h7-5-5h7-5---------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------8p7-5-5h7-5-5h7-5---------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------8-6-5---|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------6-|
  (B)
E|7h9-7---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------10p9-7-7h9-7-7h9-7--------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------9p8-6-6h8-6-6h8-6--------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------9p8-6-6h8-6-6h8-6--------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------9-7-6---|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------7-|

then the rest is over the B chord I believe.
here's the next little riff he does.

E|-----------------------|E|------------|
B|-----------------7h9p7-|B|-9h11p9-----|
G|------9h11p9-----------|G|--------9p7-|
D|7h9p7--------9p7-------|D|------------|
A|-----------------------|A|------------|
E|-----------------------|E|------------|

 (repeat once, then play the part before that again)
Then, on the first (above the waves....) play a
B major on the 7th fret on every 3rd beat. and a C# major > B major at the
last (above the waves....).
On the next time around, instead of playing the B on every 3rd beat, it
goes B > E, B > E alternating every other 3rd beat, until the last (above
the waves...) where its a G#m > F# major.
(If all this details just confuses you, just listen to a tape and listen
for the chord changes.:)
then the song drops into F#m, where Jon comes in with this riff.

(now, after the jam, when it comes back into this section, you're
basically playing the same thing as above, until right before the D-A-G-A
part, where you play over these chords: F#m F Bb E A. After the last A, it
goes into the D-A-G-A.)
This is a simple D, A, G progression. Play the D on the 5th fret, the A
also on the 5th, and the G on the 3rd. Figure out the rhythm and all that
for yourself, cause its pretty simple. :)

E|--------------------------------------------|
B|10-10-10-10-9-7-7-----------10-9-7-7--------|

G|----------------------------------------------------------14-|

then he comes back in with that same intro riff for 2 measures (i think),
then he does something like this. (note: he first starts this a octave
higher, but its much easier to learn it this way first)

E--------------------------------|
B|----3-------5-------7----------|
G|2/4---4-4/6---6-6/9---7-9-9h11-|

(then, just repeat intro riff)
