/ KISS / Crazy Nights (1987) / My Way bass tab

MY WAY (from the KISS CD "CRAZY NIGHTS")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Before someone points it out I will, this tab is tuned differently
from the guitar tab. Why? Heck if I know. When I did the guitar tab for this
song there was nothing to indicate anything but standard tuning (save perhaps
the for KISS somewhat unusual key of Bb). Since much of Paul's 80's stuff had
been in standard tuning I didn't give it a second thought. But now, when I try
my hand at the bass, it turns out that it needs a low Eb. Rather than tab this
for 5-string (which Gene rarely, is ever yields) I tabbed this for Eb-tuning.
I don't have the patience to re-tab the guitar you'll have to do with this. As
for the song, it's very 80's. Pumping eight-note bass (probably played by
either Paul or Bruce) under plenty of keyboards.
