Kiss tabs

King Of The Mountain bass tab

KING OF THE MOUNTAIN (from the KISS CD "ASYLUM")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: This bass part is fairly simple, the only hard part is getting
the rhythm right. I advise that you listen to the CD, and listen hard. Like
the other "selfproduced" albums KISS made in the late 80's/early 90's, the
sound here isn't the best. But, with a pair of headphones (and the re-
mastered CD) the bass should come through enough for you to get the rhytym.
