Kiss tabs

Somewhere Between Heaven And Hell bass tab

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL (from the KISS CD "HOT IN THE SHADE")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: This is one of the best bass sounds KISS has ever put to tape.
Gene's main bass has a biting punsch in the mid-range and with a touch
of overdrive (the real tube overdrive, no distorsion here) the sound has
an unmistakeable growl to it. On top of that the line is sometimes doubled
by a synth bass (in the verse and indicated places in the tab). I kind of
like how the low E anchors the verse while the guitar plays various chords
over it. Notes in parenthesis are played every once in a while.


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
