I figured I would update the tab of Hotter Than Hell that was already there.

Hotter Than Hell - by Kiss
Original version on the album Hotter Than Hell (1974)
Words and music by Paul Stanley

Transcribed by Mark Vignati (gs01mcv@panther.gsu.edu)

Note about tuning: For some reason, this song is the only one on 
the album Hotter Than Hell that is tuned one whole step below
standard pitch. All other songs for this album are one half step
below standard, and the live version of Hotter Than Hell on Alive!
is one half-step down also. Just be aware of this when you play 
along with either the album or studio version.

Note values are written above the staff: w=whole note, h= half
q=quarter, e=eighth, etc.  A rest will be followed by an 'r'.
'Ghost' or 'grace' notes (such as in bar 3 of riff 1) will be
noted by an *.
Lyrics will be under staff, as physically close to their rhythmic
placement in the song as ASCII will allow.

Song is in 4/4.

Sorry I don't know the solos, but maybe someone can appent this

two separate solos going at once. Ace uses one of these for the
live version solo.
