GIMME MORE (from the KISS CD "LICK IT UP")

Standard tuning

Comments: This has basically the same feel as most of Paul¥s fast 80¥s
numbers: it has some cool riffs and the chorus is mostly just a simple
chant. In Rhy. Fig 2 the downward slides are either the regular grab-a-
note-and-slide-it-down-for-effect rock clichÈ, or pick scrapes. If you
listen to the record it¥s pretty clear. The part that¥s repeated three
times in Rhy. Figs 1, 2a and 2b should ring throghout. The solo has a
little difficulty (apart from being fast). 2nd and 3rd system has a bend-
whammybar-release figure. What you do is press down on the whammy very
quickly, just a quick twitch really, and let it up as you¥re doing the
bend. Takes some getting used to but it sounds cool.

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
