TOUGH LOVE (from the KISS album "REVENGE")
----------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark (emil@kisstabs.com)

Tuned down whole-step to D

Comments: Almost heavy metal this one. During the last pre-chorus, riffs
4a and 4b are extended by one bar of E5-chords. Everything is pretty 
straight-forward, the solo is harmless so to speak and most of the fills
are too. Only the outro solo gets a little fast.


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

[Rhythm Fig. 3]
I wanna take you down
Until the morning light
Why don´t you come around
And let mr treat you right

I´m the one who gave you what you´d never had
You said I should .. be gentle and be good
But, hoped the hell I would be bad

I wanna take you
Baby gonna make you

[Rhythm Fig. 3]
I tie you to the rings
I feel your fever rise
We love to do the things
That others fantasize

[Rhythm Fig. 4a & 4b]
And then .. you smile and bring me to my knees
But when I try a gentle lullaby
I swear I hear you sighing please

I wanna take you
Baby gonna make you
[Rhythm Fig. 1]
Gimme, tough love
[Rhythm Fig. 5a & 5b]
C´mon and please me
Take your time and tease me

I never knew how much I needed you till now
But now I know, and tonight I´m gonna show you how

I wanna take you
Baby gonna make you
[Rhythm Fig. 1 with Riff 2]
Gimme, tough love
