I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE STATE OF ROCK AND ROLL (from the KISS album "PSYCHO CIRCUS")
-------------------------------------------------
Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark (emil@kisstabs.com)
		   & Mark Perillo (mark@kisstabs.com)


Standard tuning

Comments: Pretty cool stuff, it sounds strange to me though. The chord
sequence feels backwards somehow. Great solo by Paul (that wide vibrato
is a dead give-away).


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
