LOVE'S A DEADLY WEAPON (from the KISS CD "ASYLUM")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: Whoever played this, and I'm thinking it has to be Gene with all
the "non-directional" slides and stuff, was crazy. This song is fast and
the bass is all over the place. If you're serious about playing this part
you've got some work to do. For the up-the-fingerboard slides from the 12th
fret, aim roughly at the area around the 17th to 19th frets. That's where
the slide tends to end up before having to come down for the next lick.


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
