Comments: The guitars here are arranged as the rhythm guitars in KISS
ususally are except in the intro where they take turns and kind of
trade the riffs between each other. There won't be any audible
difference if the guitars each stick to their part (as they do later
throughout the song), but it's very distinct when you listen to the
song in headphones. Overall this is a good guitar song; there's the
interlocking rhythm parts, two guitars play the fills in octaves, and
two guitars trade harmony lines for the two solos (which were a bitch 
to transcribe by the way, the Best of KISS tab book didn't even bother
to tab the Outro solo properly). All bends at the 3rd fret, 6th string
are a 1/4-step.

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

Very thorough tab. You really went to great lengths to tab this. but it's very confusing, what's going on in the song. Maybe if you structured it a little better, such as instead of putting the song structure at the very bottom, intersperse it within the tabulature, and be more clear on which is one guitar part and which is the other (such as putting the labels "Guitar 1" and "Guitar 2" in there)and make the lines of tab longer. Instead of repeating everything, you could have made the chorus Rhythm Figure 2a and 2b and just referenced to rythm figure 2a and 2b the rest of the song instead of retabbing it every time. All the notes seem accurate, just a few tips to make your actual tabulature more understandable.
