Wake Up by Rage Against The Machine

 

 

 

Tabbed by R.AllenCanterbury

 

This is a real cool song. Timmy does some neat stuff--variations on what

 

I call "Riff 4." I've tried to pick them up and make note of them when they

 

happen (by writing my own variation of Riff 4.), but what's written is by

 

no means what Timmy's playing. It only sounds neat to me. :) I think the

 

entire song is here, at least in format. A few slides here and there I

 

may have missed. Enjoy! Keep on Raging!
