Waterfall : The Stone Roses
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’ve Tabbed out most the bits individually to make it a bit easier for myself
they all link together you should be able to get the jist of it (I think!!)
Its played with a Capo on the 4th fret but its not essential.

Tabbed by: Kowalski

Tuning: Standard

There is another bit to the outro Squire does it at Blackpool live
Its also on the record but overdubbed on top of the main outro riff
I don’t know how to tab Bends out so I’ve put a Slide symbol there instead but
its not a Slide its a Bend! If anyone can show me please post it in the comments
