HOLE HEARTED - Extreme
(From "Pornograffiti", 1990)

Hole Hearted is not really that hard to play.  The only tricky
part is the following that I've given below.  The rest, I'm sure
you've figured or can figure out easily enough.

This is a positively funky sound.  Play it on the twelve string
like Nuno and you get that full sound.

Priorities come to the      mind
This inner piece I've yet to find


The words are something like this:

Life's ambitions occupy my time
Priorities come to the mind
Happiness one step behind
This inner peace I've yet to find

Rivers flow into the sea
But even the sea's not so full of me
If I'm not blind why can't I see
That circle can't fit where a square should be
There's a hole in my heart that can only be filled by you
And this hole in my heart can't be filled with the things I do
Hole hearted  Hole hearted

This heart of stone is where I hide
These feet of clay kept warm inside
Day by day less satisfied
Not fade away before I die

Rivers flow....

There's a hole in my heart that can only be filled by you
Should have known from the start I'd fall short with the things I do
Hole hearted




HOLE HEARTED - Extreme
(From "Pornograffiti", 1990)
Written by Nuno Bettencourt and Gary Cherone. Performed by Extreme.
Tab by Edwin (eliu@mechanical.watstar.uwaterloo.ca)
    and Anand "Indy" Kumar (st001904@hrz1.hrz.th-darmstadt.de)


Here's the complete song (without the overdubs).

The hard part was done by Edwin (eliu@mechanical.watstar.uwaterloo.ca),
to whom I send my special thanks. Wouldn't have tried this one without his
encouraging words: "Hole Hearted is not really that hard to play."

Didn't include the lyrics with all this copyright stuff going on.

       -Edwin

Personally, I didn't find the rest that easy to figure, so I'll post it.
If you're having a hard time too, I hope it serves you.

That's all. Not 100% sure of the voicings, but Nuno plays 12 string and I can
only afford 6, so everything he plays sounds so rich to me, that I tried to play
the maximum amount of strings possible. (How do you call chords like "E7(+sus4)"
properly ???)

Says Edwin: "Knock yourselves out"
