Here is a guitar tab for the INTRO of the song 'Water' (LIVE VERSION) by The Who.

There are two popular Live versions. One of them is the 'Isle of Wight' version, 
and the other is the 'Tanglewood' version. Below i give you tabs for BOTH versions, 
because Pete plays the intro differently during each version.
