Black Diamond is one of the best known KISS songs of all time. It has been used for years as
the ending of almost every KISS show. This version features the decending pitch at the end of 
the song. Ace bases his leads on the A minor blues scale. He uses some cool string skipping and
pull-offs and hammer-ons to improvise on the basic blues positions. This creates some great
lead work and easy to remember lines.

There's nothin' that you can do, no, no
