Kiss tabs

I'm in Need of Love bass tab

I'M IN NEED OF LOVE (from the KISS CD "")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Once again Will Lee has free reign over the bass frequencies and
he uses it wisely. Here he plays infinite variations on the main chord
sequence. He throws in little scalar runs, minor to major thirds, chordal
slides and plenty of 7ths. It's an encyclopedia of cool stuff. I've
alternated open A's with fretted ones on the 6th string to facilitate
shifts. For the E-diad slide in Rhy. Fig 7 (line 3) make a steady slide
all the way up. There are a few points here I'm not quite sure about. Again,
in Rhy. Fig 7 (line 14) there are a bunch of acsending chords that sound OK
but not quite right. I just can't seem to get them.


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
