Kiss – Aint Quite Right tab ver. 2

AIN'T QUITE RIGHT (from the KISS CD "PAUL STANLEY")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: The rhythm doesn't seem like much here but there is actually
quite a lot going on. There's the main clean electric on the left, another
clean electric on the right which does some quick slides, one overdriven
electric which handles the power chords, and finally there's actually a
12-string acoustic which comes in here and there to flesh out the
rhythm. Add one overdriven guitar playing small fills (once again during
the solo) and one more clean electric playing little fills during the
outro and that's quite the guitar army. Of course, the general in charge
is the solo guitar which I think Paul played himself. (There are also some
E-bow playing after the solo and in the outro but I haven't notated that.)
