Boomerang bass tab

BOOMERANG (from the KISS CD "HOT IN THE SHADE")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: Actually it's slightly below E so tune to the open E that opens
the song. To paraphrase the reverend Homer Simpson, this sucks more than any
bunch of sucks ever sucked. The fact that the song is in a break-neck tempo
(around 280 bpm) and that the guitar and bass doesn't play much like each
other during the main riff makes this one big mush. One would think that
Gene heard that there was no separation on the track. But then again, he
obviously thought it was a good idea to record the song in the first place.


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
