Is That You? guitar tab

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

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: This track, although not penned by a KISS-member, pretty much sets
the tone of this album. It is pop-city here but with some nasty-sounding
guitars. If I had to venture a guess, I would say that the solo is Paul.
Frankly, I don't even see Ace anywhere near this track. There is something
in the background during the second verse. I think it's an electric piano
playing staccato eights. The most interesting thing abouot this track is the
very weird little fill that appears in the first chorus (Riff 1). It is
totally out of left field (which makes it appropriate that it appears in
the left channel).
