Standard tuning


Comments: This is great rock and roll. A lot of the rhythm work is straight


out of the KISS book of rhythm, it's especially like some of the work in


Christine Sixteen. This has appeared elsewhere on the net in a very poor


version. Plenty of the signature stuff, for instance the very distinctive


way of playing the A-chord right before the chorus (Rhy. Fig 5), has been


totally misrepresented in that tab. Same thing with the rhythm work under


the solo (Rhy. Fig 7). On the record Rhy. Figs 3 (a and b), 5, 6 and 7 are


played by two guitars, one on the right the other on the left. Rhy. Fig 4


and 2 is played by a separate guitar, mixed in the middle, that also handles


Riff 1.


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
