All American Man  Kiss



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

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com
Tuned down 1/2-step
Comments: Oh yeah. Why has this song never found its way into the KISS live
set? This is Paul at his best. For the main rhythm part let the open A-string
ring against the double-stops most of the time. (In fact, just let the
entire riff ring really.) The second guitar, which appears on the right,
doubles the main riff during the first verse but soon goes off on its own
in order to play the complementary part. Th solo is short and consists
entirely of repeating patterns. The harmonized line in the beginning is
much cooler. (Previous tabs on the net have neglected the harmony part here.)
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
