KILLER (from the KISS CD "CREATURES OF THE NIGHT")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: The bass plays a central role in this song. The Peter Gunn-type
riff during the verse contrasts nicely with the static E's played by the
guitar and the little minor pentatonic motif in the pre-chorus, with a
serious b7 to create tension, just plain rocks.
