* Special Notes: During the strumming parts of the interlude I believe KISS
uses a Cadd9 chord diagramCadd9Cadd9 before they change to the D chord diagramDD chord, but I like the way the G chord diagramGG
chord sounds better. So try it out both ways and pick your fave! Also the
Unplugged version might be different from the Hotter Than Hell version so if
it is you'll have to adjust timing, etc...
