Kiss tabs

Saint And Sinner bass tab

SAINT AND SINNER (from the KISS CD "CREATURES OF THE NIGHT")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: The bass here is fairly simple, triple-based and mainly on the
open E-string. The sound is really metallic, kind of like constant string
buzz, which enables the bass to cover both the low end and cut through on
the minor fills.


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
