NEW YORK GROOVE 
by Ace Frehley/KISS 1978

The transcription for this song comes mainly from Ace Frehley's solo album 
in 1978 with a few things that KISS added in live during the chorus.   
All chords for this song are power chords.

Transcribed by Robert Benotti (BenottiR@aspen.uml.edu)  Date: 9/7/95
Any corrections would be appreciated. Also, if anyone knows the solo that 
Ace used to play live, and could send it to me, I would appreciate it. Enjoy.
