Almost Human bass tab

ALMOST HUMAN (from the KISS album "LOVE GUN")
------------
Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark (emil@kisstabs.com)

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Whoever plays bass on this track (and the sheer number of 
variations makes me think itīs Gene) is solid, and lays down several 
cool variations on the fairly simple chorus riff. Lots of fun stuff to 
learn.

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
#(#) = Trill
**   = 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

Almost human
Simmons

[Intro: Guitar only]
Aah, ha
[Rhy. Fig 1]
[Rhy. Fig 2](2x)

[Rhy. Fig 2] 
I'm almost human, can't help feelin' strange 
The moon is out, I think I'm gonna change 

[Rhy. Fig 3]
You're so smooth and tender, a living, breathing dream 
I've got to have you, baby, I'm listenin' for your scream 

[Rhy. Fig 4]
I'm almost human, I'm almost a man 
I'm almost human, ooh 

[Rhy. Fig 2]
I'm almost human, baby please don't run away 
'Cause wherever you run I'll be your scrape-away 

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I'm very hungry and you're what I'm thinkin' of 
Ooh baby, baby, baby, so hungry for your love 

[Rhy. Fig 5]
I'm almost human, oh, almost a man 
I'm almost human, whoo 

[Rhy. Fig 6]

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I'm very hungry and you're what I'm thinkin' of 
Ooh baby, baby, baby, so hungry for your love 

[Rhy. Fig 7]
I'm almost human, I'm almost a man 
I'm almost human, I'm almost human 
I'm almost human, I'm almost human 
I'm almost human, almost, almost, almost a man 
I'm almost human 
Almost, almost, almost, almost, almost, almost human 
I'm almost human, I'm almost human 
I'm almost human, almost a man 
I'm almost human, almost, almost, almost 
I'm almost human
