Supertramp - Goodbye Stranger
From the album: Breakfast In America
Transcribed by: Travis Lausch

This song is incredibly dynamic, and features a lot of volume shifts, so I've marked 
out.
I couldn't really be bothered transcribing the ending solo's rhythm as it's really 
It's not
that hard to figure out something for yourself there. Actually, I'm not even sure if 
is any
guitar in that section or not. Portions of this tab are based on a Guitar Pro tab I 
on this
site, but some parts of the solo and otherwise were learned by ear.

Guitar tuning is standard (E A D G B E)
