Odyssey guitar tab

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

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: There isn't much guitar on this one, just three things really:
the solo and two riffs that appear towards the end. I have done my best at
deciphering the chordal structure here though and have, where possible,
transcribed the piano part for guitar. These chords sound kind of weird
(or terrible, you choose) when played without at least the bass. When
played to the album it doesn't sound half bad.


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
