Rogue Wave
Fantasies
Tabbed by Johan


I pieced this together myself, and it's not perfect, but definitely does the
job.

[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   
D

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.

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*.
