TOUGH LOVE (from the KISS album "REVENGE")
----------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark (emil@kisstabs.com)

Tuned down whole-step to D

Comments: Almost heavy metal this one. During the last pre-chorus, riffs
4a and 4b are extended by one bar of E5-chords. Everything is pretty 
straight-forward, the solo is harmless so to speak and most of the fills
are too. Only the outro solo gets a little fast.


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
