"My interpretation of Rage Against The Machine's Song FREEDOM"

 

Dropped D Tuning

 

Riff 1

G----------------------------------------------------------------------------

D----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A-----5-------3-------5-5-----5-------3-------5------------------------------

D-------0-3-5---5-3-5-----0-3---0-3-5---5-3-5--------------------------------

 

(the ending of riff 1 is actually varied some--so ad lib at will!)

 

Riff 1 Variant: (this is played instead of Riff 1 a few times--you can hear

when to use it--just listen to the CD!)

G----------------------------------------------------------------------------

D------------------------------------------------5-4-3-----------------------

A-----5-------3-------5-5-----5-------3-------5--------5-4-3-----------------

D-------0-3-5---5-3-5-----0-3---0-3-5---5-3-5--------------------------------

 

 

 

Then the next part goes like this.

 

Riff 2 for a short while...

G----------------------------------------------------------------------------

D----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A----------------------------------------------------------------------------

D---0--0--R--0--0--R--0--0--R--0--0--R--0--0--R--0--0--R--0--0------------

 

 

Then it goes back to Riff 1, and Riff 2. This is followed by a short

interlude where only the drums and bass are playing.

 

After spoken: "Anger is a gift..."

 

Riff 3 X a bunch

G-----------------------------------|

D-----------------------------------|

A-----3-3-3-3-3-3-5--5-5-5-3-5------|

D-----------------------------------|

 

4 TIMES

G------------------------------------------------------|

D*--------------5-3-5-3-5-----------------------------*|

A*---5-3-5-3-5------------3-2-3-2-3-------------------*|

D-------------------------------------5-3-5-3-5-3------|

 

Do Riff 2 again.

 

Last Riff:

The guitar plays this part softly 4 times, then the bass joins in.

The guitar gets distorted after a few times then. Be careful, this riff

is played the same over and over for bass, but the song has a change in

accent, thanks to the drums.

x lots of times

G-----------------------------------------|

D*---------------------------------------*|

A*-----------------0--3--4--5------------*|

D--------3--5--6--------------------------|

 

Oh...anyways. You get the jist of it. The riffs are there. Just feel

the music.
