When Your Walls Come Down guitar tab

WHEN YOUR WALLS COME DOWN (from the KISS CD "CRAZY NIGHTS")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: This song is dense so I might be a little off here and there.
As a whole this album is very cluttered sonically, the guitars take up
a lot of space and the keyboards infest almost every song. It still
sounds pretty good and there?s some cool songs but for transcribing it
is a nightmare. Here it is very hard to hear the last time the clean
guitar comes in. Also, the solo is kick-ass fast in some places. I
can?t really claim to be accurate there.
