TOUGH LOVE (from the KISS CD "REVENGE")
--------------------

Tuned down a whole-step to D

Comments: Down-tuned rumble is what it's all about here. Plenty of cool
riffs and Gene chooses to stay with the guitars for the most part. There
is one small problem here though. In Rhy. Fig 7 there is a chromatic
approach (Db-D-Eb) right at the end of the second staff, and the first
two notes there are actually an octave lower. Either Gene played a
5-string (in that case tuned down to A) for the entire track, but that's
not like him at all, or, that particular part is doubled by some kind
of octave divider. I can't tell. But listen for that part and you will hear
some of the lowest notes you've ever heard in your life.


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
