Somewhere Between Heaven And Hell guitar tab

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

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: I'm not overly excited about this chorus but I think the verse
is really good. Much of it is carried by the bass and that very special sound
it has but the guitars, even though they only play simple power chords really,
add that little extra touch. I think the guitars have a good sound too. As
far as I can tell there's only one rhythm guitar (perhaps doubled, not sure)
and one guitar playing little fills. Note how "weak" the first two bars of
the chorus are when the rhythm guitar only plays that arpeggiating pattern
without any low root note.

*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
