# KISS - Is That You Tab

Standard guitar tuning: EADGBENo capo

IS THAT YOU? (from the KISS CD "UNMASKED")

Comments: This track, although not penned by a KISS-member, pretty much sets
the tone of this album. It is pop-city here but with some nasty-sounding
Guitars. If I had to venture a guess, I would say that the solo is Paul.Frankly, I don't even see Ace anywhere near this track. There is something
In the background during the second verse. I think it's an electric pianoplaying staccato eights. The most interesting thing abouot this track is the
Very weird little fill that appears in the first chorus (Riff 1). It istotally out of left field (which makes it appropriate that it appears in
the left channel).
