Is That You? bass tab

IS THAT YOU? (from the KISS CD "UNMASKED")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comment: DonĄt think Gene played on this. ItĄs all staccato eight-notes,
and over static chords like these he usually goes crazy. Check out the
Peter Gunn- or Batman-like riff in Rhy. Fig 4d.

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
