Kiss tabs

Love in Chains bass tab

LOVE IN CHAINS (from the KISS CD "PAUL STANLEY")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: A fairly simple bass line this. The bass happens to play some
pretty cool stuff though. The main riff, which punctuates the verse so
well, is a kick-ass hybrid between holding down the fort and showing off.
the pre-chorus riff, Rhy. Fig 5, is also very nice in its use of the ninth
to create a little harmonic tension.

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
