Beth  Kiss



--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com
Standard tuning
Comments: There is in actuality only guitar at the very end of the studio
version of Beth, but it's a great song so I've taken the liberty of
arranging the parts for acoustic guitar. Rhy. Fig 1 is based on the piano
in the intro, Rhy. Figs 2, 3 and 5 are based on the acoustic demo for
Beth, and Rhy. Fig 4 is kind of a combination of the strings and the under-
lying harmonic movement in the instumental interlude. Since people have
asked that I include chord names when doing this sort of thing they can
be found above each staff. Play fingerstyle and let ring throughout.
Key:
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
b = bend (whole step)
b^ = bend (1/2 step)
b^^ = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb = pre-bend
r = release-bend
t = tap with righthand finger
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
~ = Vibrato
* = Natural Harmonic

** = Artificial Harmonic
x = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\) = Dive w\bar
(/) = Release w\bar
Tp = Tap w\plectrum

BETH
Peter Criss, Stan Penridge, Bob Ezrin
[Rby. Fig 1] 
[Rby. Fig 2] 
Beth, I hear you callin'
But I can't come home right now
Me and the boys are playin'
And we just can't find the sound
Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
[Rby. Fig 3] 
I think I hear them callin'
Oh, Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do
[Rby. Fig 2] 
You say you feel so empty
That our house just ain't a home
And I'm always somewhere else
And you're always there alone
Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
[Rby. Fig 3] 
I think I hear them callin'
Oh, Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do
[Rby. Fig 4] 
[Rby. Fig 3] 
[Rby. Fig 5] 
Beth, I know you're lonely
And I hope you'll be alright
'Cause me and the boys will be playin'
[Rby. Fig 6] 
All night
