Cold Gin

Kiss



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

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com
Tuned down 1/2-step
Comments: Once again Ace is on the right and this time, not surprisingly
since he wrote the song, he handles the main rhythm duties. A point of
interest is that the song doesn't have a solo a rarity in the KISS catalog
(I can only think of one other song that is lead-less). I know that the
"what-goes-where" part of this tab is a little cluttered but the principle
is easy. You'll get the hand of it. Great riffs. Great song.
Key:
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
b = bend (whole step)
b^ = bend (1/2 step)

P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\) = Dive w\bar
(/) = Release w\bar
Tp = Tap w\plectrum
