Rage Against the Machine (Rage Against the Machine)

 

TAKE THE POWER BACK - tabbed by Kevin Dole

 

 

Typical of Tom, this songs has deceptively simple riffs as well as strange fills and FX. He's

using that damn Digitech Whammy Pedal again . . . But here's the meat and potatoes of it.

It's in "Drop D" tuning.

 

In the beginning while the drums play it sounds like he's picking all up and down different

strings while palm muting.

 

When the bass kicks in:

Slide from the first to second chord slowly, I think he turns the volume knob as well.

A:-9-/9--8-/6--9/7----------|

E:--------------------------|

 

 

Riff A "Bring that shit in!"

 

e:--------------------------|

B:--------------------------| The fill sounds like a huge slide from

G:--------------------------| somewhere high up on the neck, possibly mixed with

D:------------3---------3---| a tweaking of the volume knob.

E:-0-0----------------------|

Chorus "We gotta take the power back!"

 

e:--------------------------|

B:--------------------------| He fills with the "chirping" and he makes
