I?M ALIVE (from the KISS CD "ASYLUM")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: Plenty of 80?s style Paul riffs here. Rhy. Fig 3?s overall shape
and note choice has turned up in several places before and the sliding
fourths figure at the end of Rhy. Fig 1 is also an oldie but a goodie.
It is technically rather demanding to keep up with the string skipping,
muting and sliding at this tempo (it is fast!) so watch out.


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
