Love In Chains

Kiss



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

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com
Standard tuning
Comments: This is a weird song. I was suprised at what Paul actually plays
here. I thought he was using regular chords (I've fooled around with the song
a few times, mostly because of the killer riff that is Rhy. Fig 3), but he's
actually using a kind of resounding G5 with a diatonically moving bass note.
Very strange. But it sounds good. The "a"-forms to each Rhy. Fig is on the
left while the "b"-forms are on the right should anyone want to hear them
separately. There's one thing here that merits attention. In Rhy. Fig 2, the
"let ring" means that you have to let the D, G and B-strings ring as you shift
from the G (6th string, 3rd fret) to the A.
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
