Exciter guitar tab

EXCITER (from the KISS CD "LICK IT UP")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: The open E-string during the first part of Rhy. Fig 1 is actually
natural harmonics. To get that sound, slide your left index finger along the
string (just resting it on the string as when playing natural harmonics)
from the 12th fret down to the 5th fret and back up again in time. It should
take 8 pick strokes either way. On beat one you should be at the 12th fret, at
beat three you should be at the 5 th fret and so on. The solo might not be
entirely accurate. There is an extreme amount of delay on that guitar and it
is hard to figure out what is played and what is generated by the delay.

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
