NEW YORK GROOVE
by Ace Frehley/KISS 1978

The transcription for this song comes mainly from Ace Frehley’s solo album
in 1978 with a few things that KISS added in live during the chorus.
All chords for this song are power chords.

Any corrections would be appreciated. Also, if anyone knows the solo that
Ace used to play live, and could send it to me, I would appreciate it. Enjoy.
