Standard tuning

Comments: This probably should have been a full tab but the odd number of
bars in the chorus (5) and the addition of a few bars of what seems to be 
2/4 in the last chorus would make that look really strange. That's why
I've chosen this more conventional approach. But, there's really no
repetition here as you'll notice once you start playing. Gene, I can't
see it being anyone else, pulls out the whole bag of tricks and hammers
home small variations on the main themes. Most of the stuff here is played
very staccato. The only notes that are held of their full value are the
open E's that end the chorus.


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

I LOVE IT LOUD
Paul Stanley, Vinnie Vincent

[Intro: Drums only]

[Rhy. Fig 1]
Stand up, you don't have to be afraid
Get down - love is like a hurricane
Street boy, no I never could be tamed
Better believe it
Guilty 'till I'm proven innocent
Whiplash, heavy metal accident
Rock on, I wanna be President

[Rhy. Fig 2]
(I love it) Loud, I wanna hear it loud
Right between the eyes
Loud, wanna hear it loud
Don't want no compromise

[Rhy. Fig 3]
Turn it up, hungry for the medicine
Two fisted to the very end
No more treated like aliens
We're not gonna take it
No lies, no more alibis
Turn it up, it's got me hypnotized
Rock on, I won't be tranquilized, I love it

[Rhy. Fig 4]
(I love it) Loud, I wanna hear it loud
Right between the eyes
Loud, wanna hear it loud
Don't want no compromise

[Rhy. Fig 5]

Loud, wanna hear it loud
Don't want no compromise

Turn it up!

[Rhy. Fig 7]

[Rhy. Fig 8]
Headlines, jungle is the only rule
Front page, roar of the nation cool
Turn it up, this is my attitude
Take it or leave it

[Rhy. Fig 9]
Loud, I wanna hear it loud
Right between the eyes
(I love it) Loud, wanna hear it loud
Don't want no compromise

[Rhy. Fig 10]
(I love it) Loud, I wanna hear it loud
Right between the eyes
(I love it) Loud, wanna hear it loud
