Generation X kiss me deadly
Tabbed by Liam

Tuning half a step down

This song is also re-played now by Billy Idol out of Generation X, with Steve Stevens on guitar.

Contrary to popular belief this song is not played with a capo (I think many people get
wrong because either they are deaf!? Or they are just following the common misconception
all punk musicians can’t play guitar!?) To reiterate all the guitars in this song do not use a capo.

Here is the tab, please rate etc, thanks.

Great job on the tab - basically dead on. One unusual thing on this song is the tuning - it is actually someplace between normal and 1/2 down on the Generation X album - almost a 1/4 down tuning - not a strict 1/2 down. Try playing along with normal tuning or 1/2 down tuning while listening to the album and it jumps out at you - actual tuning is more like a 1/4 shift. When I play with a pitch shifter I can get it almost exact. For years I tried to figure this song out and I never could until the tuning thing became apparent.

I want to post or [tab]
