/ KISS / Crazy Nights (1987) / Reason To Live bass tab

REASON TO LIVE (from the KISS CD "CRAZY NIGHTS")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: Note that this tab is for 5-string bass. Should that not be to your
liking there are two ways to play it on a 4-string. The first is to simply
play the Eb?s in Rhy. Fig 2 an octave above, that is on the 6th fret of the
A-string. The other is to tune down 1/2-step and play everything one fret
up. That will land the Eb in question on the open E-string. The part in
itself is nothing to write home about. Very minimal work to leave sonic space
for the keyboards.

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
