ALWAYS NEAR YOU/NOWHERE TO HIDE (from the KISS CD "GENE SIMMONS")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: I like these chords, specially when the "harmony" part comes in
by the second verse. There is also some very good solo guitar work here
(although the last G natural against the E major chord in Riff 3 is a little
annoying even with the gradual bend to the A). The high A's that fade in
(both bent and straight) give a slightly eerie feel to the track. And you
got to love Gene's castrato vocals during the jamming outro.


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
