Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, kfemil@telia.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: There are a couple of slides from the 3rd fret, 4th string notated
here. They should be rammed all the way up the fingerboard. Just go till
there's no place left to go, then head down for the rest of the riff. 


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

BLACK DIAMOND
Paul Stanley

[Guitar only]
Out on the street for a living
Picture's only begun
Got you under their thumb
Hit it

[Rhy. Fig 1] (2x)

[Rhy. Fig 2]
Out on the streets for a living
Picture's only begun
Your day is sorrow and madness
Got you under their thumb

[Rhy. Fig 4]
Whoo, black diamond
Whoo, black diamond

[Rhy. Fig 1]

[Rhy. Fig 3]
Darkness will fall on the city
It seems to follow you too
And though you don't ask for pity
There's nothin' that you can do, no, no

[Rhy. Fig 4]
Whoo, black diamond
Whoo, black diamond

[Rhy. Fig 5]

[Rhy. Fig 1] (2x)

[Rhy. Fig 6]
Out on the streets for a living
Picture's only begun
Your day is sorrow and madness
Got you under their thumb

Whoo, black diamond

[Rhy. Fig 8] (2x)
