Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: For the positions in this tab I've used what Gene usually plays
live (position-wise that is), including on The Last KISS special. However,
I think Ace played this line. It has the kind of understated quality that
is very much him when it comes to bass. Either way, there are a few 
variations but nothing hard or surprising. Still a really cool riff. This 
song has been tabbed previously on the BTA by Judy Letostak 
(letostak@ix.netcom.com). Her claim that you shouldn't gripe to her about 
any mistakes in her tab since she's it's free doesn't apply here. If you
think I'm wrong, let me know (pun intended). No part of Judy's original
tab has been used here.

Dude, this is kinda hard to follow. You should break it into verse/chorus/bridge/solo chunks next time, instead of rhythm figs.
