Comments: I¥ve arranged the tabs here so that the a-version of each is the
guitar on the left and the b-version is the one on the right (most of
the time). Of course, sometimes they play the same thing (even though 
the guitar on the right kind of weaves in and out of the mix in a strange
fashion) and there are other guitars that pop up for fun. The first part 
of the solo is by Paul and the second is Ace. I think, but I¥m not sure 
about this, that Paul comes back to finish the solo off for the last four 
bars (last two staffs). It sounds a lot like his vibrato there.


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

I WANT YOU
Paul Stanley

[Rhy. Fig 1a w/ Rhy. Fig 1b]
In the morning I raise my head
And I'm thinkin' of days gone by
And the thing I want out of life is

[Rhy. Fig 2]

[Rhy. Fig 3a w/ Rhy. Fig 3b]
I want you (I want you)
[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b]
I want you (I want you)

[Rhy. Fig 7 w/ Riff 1] (2x)
You can run, you can hide
But you never get away
You can lie and deny
But you know you're gonna pay

[Rhy. Fig 8a]
Never loved, never thought you could
Treat you right, girl, you know I would
You can fight but tonight
There's nothin' you can do

[Rhy. Fig 3a w/ Rhy. Fig 3b]
I want you (I want you)
[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b]
Baby, baby, babe, I want you (I want you)

[Rhy. Fig 7 w/ Riff 2] (2x)
You can walk in a haze
You can travel till you die
You can live in a dream
And your life will pass you by

[Rhy. Fig 8a]
Every day that you hesitate
You're never changin' the hands of fate
You can fight but tonight
There's nothing you can do

[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b] (2x)
I want you (I want you)
Baby, baby, babe I want you (I want you)

[Solo 1 then Solo 2 over Rhy. Fig 9 w/ Riff 2]
[Rhy. Fig 8b]

[Rhy. Fig 10a w/ Rhy. Fig 10b]
In the morning I raise my head
And I'm thinkin' of days gone by
And the thing I want out of life is

[Rhy. Fig 2] (w/ flanger)

[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b and Riff 1]
I want you (I want you)
[Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b and Riff 1]
Baby, baby, babe I want you (I want you)
[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b and Riff 1]
Baby, baby, babe I want you (I want you)

[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b and Riff 3] (repeat and fade)
Baby, baby, babe I want you (I want you)
Baby, baby, babe I want you (I want you)
I want you (I want you)
I want you (I want you)
I want you (I want you)
I want you (I want you)
Ah (I want you) (I want you)
