I've seen alot of transcriptions to this song, they all tried to use standard
or Eb tuning. In reality the song uses a D type tuning which I have noted above.
Just make sure your A string is tuned to G, since that open note is a G. I remember
this song from a live video I saw in 1985. It's very weird I remembered the way it
was played, since I am not a HUGE fan of post makeup KISS. Vinnie Vincent plays in
an almost standard pentatonic position, but throws in alot of 80's flash, speed,
and whammy bar to spice this up.

CREATURES OF THE NIGHT

Victims of the moment, future deep in doubt
Living in a whisper till we start to shout

Breathing in the madness, spitting out the lies
Searching for an answer, keep your alibis

Gathering up our courage, ready for the fight
Howling in the shadows, till we start to bite

We're creatures of the night, we're creatures of the night
