Hard Times bass tab

HARD TIMES (from the KISS CD "DYNASTY")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Not much to it really. The hard part is the timing during Rhy.
Fig 1a-c. It might feel a tad uncomfortable to come in on the "2" and the
lead-in to the A to B riff feels awkward, especially if you listen to the
guitars.


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
