CADILLAC DREAMS (from the KISS CD "HOT IN THE SHADE")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: This is a fairly simple rhythm part. Problem is, at times I
think I hear another guitar far in the background. But, since I'm not
sure if it's there there's no way in hell to figure out what it plays
(if anything). As far as the song goes, I don't care much for it. It is
quintessential Gene, especially the subject matter. "When you can get it
for free it just ain't worth a damn." 'Nuff said.


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
