Waiting For The Punchline
-------------------------
EXTREME

Transcribed By Sócrates

    This is a quite melancholic EXTREME song, I
enjoyed a lot playing it.
Well, I'm sure about the riffs, but the solo part I'm
not very certain,
so, if you have any suggestion please tell me.
    For this song, you must tune you guitar at
Dropped-D, but you know,
EXTREME tunes at Eb, so I could say that you must tune
at Dropped-Db.
Anyway, This is the tuning (high to low):
Eb-Bb-Gb-Db-Ab-Db
        Questions, criticism, or whatever, please
email me
