NOTHIN' TO LOSE (from the KISS-LP "KISS")
---------------

transcribed by Mark Perillo (mark@kisstabs.com)

Eb Tuning

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
h^   = hammer-on
p^   = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Muted String (Palm Muting)
X    = Muted String (Fretboard Muting)


One of the BEST songs from the classic "KISS" debut record. The cool 
pull-off riff in the beginning resurfaces during teh song to tie parts 
together throughout. Ace's solo is based on teh 2nd and 4th position 
pentatonic in the key of A-Minor... Pretty cool... Enjoy!
