Tuned down 1/2-step
Comments: The first part of the solo, all the bends on the 15th fret seem
to be doubled and octave lower. The rhythm of those first bars are: first
repeat are quarter-notes, second is quarter-note triplets, third is eight-
note triplets and the last is sixteeenth-note triplets. The rhythm work is
mainly done by Paul and for some reason the person who mixed this songs has
foregone the usual KISS praxis of mixing each guitar hard to its own end
of the stereo spectrum and instead put both pretty much center. That's
probably because most of the time Ace doesn't play much. The track would
get kind of lopsided if there was only rhythm guitar on the left side.
