Eb Tuning

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
h^   = hammer-on
p^   = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Muted String (Palm Muting)
X    = Muted String (Fretboard Muting)


100,000 years one of the finest tracks ever recorded by KISS in my opinion.
It was also a REAL bitch to transcribe since some of the rhythm parts are
buried a bit in the mix. The Rhythm parts here should do the job to play 
this song fairly accurately. Even listening to Double Platinum and ALIVE!
didn't really help me with this tune. Ace plays it totally different live,
he skips a few passages in the solo and outro that I have transcribed here
pretty close. Ace's solo and outros are basically the same, wild repeated
unison bends in three different timings. Pay attention to those unison
bends at the beginning, I have given approximate number of times to bend,
but LISTEN and play with feel. Try not to count it, it will help the feel of
the solo immensely. Paul plays sparse throughout and Ace fills in during
some verses with doublestops to move the song along. This is a song with 
great playing, excellent vocals and a great arrangement.. A KISS classic!

100,000 YEARS - Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons

[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/ Rhythm Fig. 1a]

[Rhythm Fig. 2]
I'm sorry to have taken so long
It must have been a bitch while I was gone
You mind if I sit down for a while
You'll reacquaint yourself with my style

[Rhythm Fig. 2 w/ Rhythm Fig. 2a w/Riff. 1]
Well, how could you have waited so long
It must have been a bitch while I was gone
All this time you put up a fear
For a hundred thousand years

[Rhythm Fig.3 w/ Riff 2]

[Rhythm Fig. 2b w/Rhythm Fig. 2b w/Riff 1]
I'm sorry to have taken so long
It must have been a bitch while I was gone
All this time you put up a fear
For a hundred thousand years

[Rhythm Fig.4 w/ Riff 3]
And baby won't you let me
I think I'm goin' out of my head
I'm just about to, ooh yeah, ha

[Solo w/ Rhythm Fig. 5]

[Interlude with Rhythm Fig. 5a at end]
I'm sorry to have taken so long
It must have been a bitch while I was gone
You mind if I sit down for a while, would you babe
You'll reacquaint yourself with my style

[Outro w/ Rhythm Fig. 6]
