Thrills In The Night bass tab

THRILLS IN THE NIGHT (from the KISS CD "ANIMALIZE")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: This is true beginner bass. Just follow the riffs for the intro,
chorus and solo and then get out of the way for the verses. I kind of like
how the bass is so sparse during the verse. Everything gets kind of laid
back there; the drums play a very sparse thing too.


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
