BOOMERANG (from the KISS CD "HOT IN THE SHADE")

Standard tuning

Comments: Well, not quite. It's slightly below standard tuning, I suggest
you tune to the open A-chord in Rhy. Fig . I think this is the worst song
KISS has ever recorded. The main riff might have been cool but the
production is so bad it's hard to hear what the riff actually is. The
verse isn't a complete throwaway but the modulation to G#m manages to ruin
that too. The only thing worth salvaging here is the Solo. Bruce gets to
start things off with his usual tapping but when it goes to the part
that is without backing he lets loose with a very cool tap/pull-off part.
Easily one of the coolest licks Bruce has ever done. Since the tempo here
is in the neighborhood of 280 bpm the riffs may look very spacious. Had
I notated in double-time the sixteenths would have taken over and things
would have gotten pretty hard to read.

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
