How to play
"Waiting On The World To Change"
on guitar

Get Tuned:

The section markers in the video correlate to the section markers in the tab below to get you learning the song as quickly as possible.

Standard tuning (E A D G B E)

Here is the chord progression for the verse: D > Bm > G > D > A > Bm > G > D

The chords for the chorus are mostly the same: D > Bm > G > D > A > Bm > G > D > D > Em7 > Bm7 > D > A > Bm > G > D.

Notice that when he says "It's hard to beat the system...", is when you play D > Em > Bm7 > D.

Here are the cute little embellishments that he does between the chords:

"D > Bm tasty"
e[--------10----------]
b[--------12-p-10-----]
g[--------11----------]
d[--------------------]
a[--------------------]
e[--------------------]




"G > D tasty"
e[------------------]
b[------------------]
g[-------7----------]
d[-------7-h-9------]
a[-------9----------]
e[------------------]




"A > Bm tasty"
e[------------------]
b[-------7----------]
g[-------7-h-9------]
d[-------9----------]
a[------------------]
e[------------------]		
				

Eventually the bridge happens. The chord that he plays is a Gm7.

Hopefully that's clear enough for you all. Have fun playing!
