HEART OF CHROME (from the KISS CD "REVENGE")
--------------------
Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Another good song. Pretty straight-forward rock n¥ roll with some
Spanish/Arabian flavors thrown in for good measure. Some decent fills too. 
During the solo there is a D-note that is manipulated by turning on a mean
distorsion while flicking the wah-wah pedal.
