/ KISS / Rock and Roll Over (1976) / Mr. Speed bass tab

MR. SPEED (from the KISS CD "ROCK AND ROLL OVER")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: This is a really good rock bass line. It plays around with the
usual major triad extensions that all sound very good. Mix 6ths, 7ths and
octaves and that?s a very good basic line.


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
