Kiss tabs

Love's A Slap In The Face guitar tab

LOVE'S A SLAP IN THE FACE (from the KISS CD "HOT IN THE SHADE")
-------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: An uninspired track this. The open E and B-string offer some
interest but all in all there's little excitring going on here. The
production makes it hard to make out if there are tow rhythm guitars
playing the same thing or if it is divided between them. The tab uses
the former approach.


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
