 Eb Tuning


 


 Key:


 / = slide up


 \ = slide down


 b = bend (whole step)


 b^ = bend (1/2 step)


 pb = pre-bend


 r = release-bend


 h^ = hammer-on


 p^ = pull-off


 ~ = Vibrato


 * = Natural Harmonic




 ** = Artificial Harmonic


 x = Muted String (Palm Muting)


 X = Muted String (Fretboard Muting)


 


 100,000 years one of the finest tracks ever recorded by KISS in my opinion.


 It was also a REAL bitch to transcribe since some of the rhythm parts are


 buried a bit in the mix. The Rhythm parts here should do the job to play


 this song fairly accurately. Even listening to Double Platinum and ALIVE!


 didn't really help me with this tune. Ace plays it totally different live,


 he skips a few passages in the solo and outro that I have transcribed here


 pretty close. Ace's solo and outros are basically the same, wild repeated


 unison bends in three different timings. Pay attention to those unison


 bends at the beginning, I have given approximate number of times to bend,


 but LISTEN and play with feel. Try not to count it, it will help the feel of


 the solo immensely. Paul plays sparse throughout and Ace fills in during


 some verses with doublestops to move the song along. This is a song with


 great playing, excellent vocals and a great arrangement.. A KISS classic!
