YOU WANTED THE BEST (from the KISS CD "PSYCHO CIRCUS")
--------------------
Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: The massive guitar sounds on this tune make it a little hard
to tab, especially the first solo. Make sure to damp effectively during
the verse to get that stutter-like effect.
