Bbm – Waiting In The Wings tab ver. 2

Waiting In The Wings
BBM (Moore/Bruce)

I canÂ’t believe that thereÂ’s no tablature available on-line for this great band (BBM:
Baker, Jack Bruce, Gary Moore). ‘Waiting in the Wings’ is the opening track from their
album ‘Around the Next Dream’ and is reminiscent of Cream’s ‘White Room’ and/or ‘Tales
Brave UlyssesÂ’. ItÂ’s certainly very creamy and features some wonderful wah-wah guitar by
Moore. IÂ’ve transcribed the opening and middle solos, but the outro solo is perhaps the
impressive. IÂ’ve worked out most of this (30 bars) but havenÂ’t got around to
it. ItÂ’s a time-consuming process, but if anyone is interested I can get it written down 
posted. There are also a few lead guitar fills in verses 2 & 3.
