Kiss tabs

Odyssey bass tab

ODYSSEY (from the KISS CD "THE ELDER")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: Almost a musical number this but I think the melody is good.
Also, you gotta love those chords. The bass does nothing spectacular,
it just holds down the fort and outlines the chords. Dig the contrasting
descending and ascending motions in the verse and the chorus.

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
