  I think RW uses standard tuning in every song... :)

   Here's another fine song from Running Wild. It is quite easy to play
  but it was difficult to transcribe... so e-mail me if you find mistakes.
  The timing seems to be correct most of the time but I had some problems
  with the rythm guitar in the solo so listen to the record if you have it.
  There might more hammer-on's, pull-off's and slides so add them if you
  like. E-mail me your opinion about it!!

  NOTES:
  - Tempo is about 200, and it's played in 4/4 time;
----------------------
H = Hammer on, P = Pull off, S = Slide, Ah = Artificial harmonic

Solo: (It appears to be close enough but it's the first solo that I've transcribed... Theere is NO timing written here in the solo!! So don't wonder why the first part of the solo lasts only 8 measures while the Solo fig.1 during it lasts 16... ;)
