			     NOT LEAVIN' YET - Nickelback
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: JT from Twisted Claim

Tuning: From low to high: B A D G B E

READ THIS FIRST!!!! This is indeed the correct way to play this song! this is the way
Chad plays it. Ryan has his guitar either in standard tuning or Drop D but Chad uses this
weird, synthetic type of "Drop B" tuning. I learned this from watching them play this 
live and on acoustic guitars. Yes, these videos are on youtube. You simply have to search.
I haven't seen any correct tabs for this yet, so I'm making one for everybody. I hope
you enjoy!
**side note** This song is very fun to play and sing. I'm only tabbing Chad's part for
now, but I can tab Ryan's part too, if people want me to. Throughout the entire song,
Chad only plays on the top 2 strings (the B and A strings) except for the solo, which is 
also in this tab. Again, I hope you enjoy!

--Note--
Play Fill 1 before "The meeting called..." and play Fill 2 each time before the pre-chorus.
Also, the pre-chorus is a little hard to follow, so I've included lyrics in line with the
guitar so that you know when to strum the chords. They are a little bit more spread apart,
but it's so that they follow with the typed lyrics.

PRE-CHORUS:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------9-----9--9---9-------12-12-12-----2----2----4-4-----4------4--------|
B|-------7-----7--7---7-------10-10-10-----0----0----2-2-0h2-2--0h2-2--------|
  "But please excuse me, I'm sorry,    I just can't wait"

Then play fill 2 and repeat the pre-chorus and then play fill 1 and go back to the verse.



--Note--
I've also included the lyrics for the chorus, for the same reason as before.
Follow along with where the lyrics are placed below the tab. That will indicate
where to strum.

   * * * * * * *
  "No,            Can't you see     the lady's not ready?"

--Note--
The bridge comes after you play the chorus all the way through. It's the part where
Chad repeats "I'm not leavin' yet" over and over. It's right before the solo and also
at the end of the song where he's yelling "No" over and over. I won't be putting the
lyrics in for this part, as it is fairly simple to follow.
